12 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

SCHEDULE "B." 

This indenture made the 6th day of October, 1915, 

Between 

The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario, hereinafter called 
the " Commission," party of the first part; 

and 

The Municipal Corporation of the Town of Chesley, hereinafter called 
the " Corporation," party of the second part. 

Whereas the Corporation under the provisions of the Power Commission 
Act and amendments thereto, Revised Statutes of Ontario Chapter 39, has 
applied to the Commission for a supply of power, and has passed a by-law 
No. 612, passed the eighteenth day of October, 1915, to authorize the execu- 
tion of an agreement therefor. 

Now therefore this indenture witnesseth, that in consideration of the 
premises and of the agreement of the Corporation herein set forth, subject 
to the provisions of the said Act and amendments thereto, the parties hereto 
agree each with the other as follows: — 

1. The Commission agrees: 

(a) To reserve and deliver at the earliest possible date four hundred 
(400) h.p., or more, of electrical power to the Corporation. 

(b) At the expiration of reasonable notice, in writing, which may be 
given by the Corporation from time to time during the continuance of this 
agreement, to reserve and deliver to the Corporation additional electric 
power when called for. 

(c) To use at all times first-class, modern, standard commercial appar- 
atus and plant, and to exercise all due skill and diligence so as to secure 
satisfactory operation of the plant and apparatus of the Corporation. 

(d) To deliver commercially continuous twenty-four (24) hour power 
every day in the year to the Corporation at the distribution bus bars in the 
Commission's sub-station within the Corporation's limits. 

2. The Corporation agrees: 

(a) To use all diligence by every lawful means in its power to prepare for 
the receipt and use of the power dealt with by this agreement so as to be 
able to receive power when the Commission is ready to deliver same. 

(&) To pay annually in twelve (12) equal monthly instalments interest 
upon its proportionate part, (based on the quantity of electrical energy or 
power taken) of all moneys expended by the Commission on capital account 
for the acquiring of properties and rights, and acquiring and construction of 
generating plants, transformer stations, transmission lines, distributing 
stations and other works necessary for the delivery of said electrical energy 
or power to the Corporation under the terms of this contract. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 13 

To pay an annual sum for its proportionate part of all moneys expended 
by the Commission on capital account for the acquiring of the said properties 
and rights, and the cost of the said construction, so as to form in thirty (30) 
years a sinking fund for the retirement of securities issued by the Province 
of Ontario. 

Also to bear its proportionate part of the line loss, and pay its propor- 
tionate part of the cost to operate, maintain, repair, renew and insure the 
said generating plants, transformer stations, transmission lines, distributing 
stations, and other necessary works. 

All payments under this clause shall be subject to adjustment under para- 
graph 6. 

(c) The amounts payable in accordance with clause 2 (&) shall be paid 
in gold coin of the present standard of weight and fineness, at the offices 
of the Commission at Toronto. Bills shall be rendered by the Commission 
on or before the 5th day and paid by the Corporation on or before the 15th 
day of each month. If any bills remain unpaid for fifteen days, the Com- 
mission may, in addition to all other remedies, and without notice, dis- 
continue the supply of power to the Corporation until said bill is paid. No 
such discontinuance shall relieve the Corporation from the performance of 
the covenants, provisoes, and conditions herein contained. All payments in 
arrears shall bear interest at the legal rate. 

(d) To take electric power exclusively from the Commission during the 
continuance of this agreement. 

(e) To pay for three-fourths of the power ordered from time to time by 
the Corporation, and held in reserve for it, as herein provided, whether it 
takes the same or not. When the highest average amount of power taken 
for any twenty (20) consecutive minutes during any month exceeds during 
the twenty consecutive minutes three-fourths of the amount ordered by the 
Corporation and held in reserve, then the Corporation shall pay for this 
greater amount during the entire month. 

If the Corporation during any month takes more than the amount of 
power ordered and held in reserve for it, as determined by an integrated 
peak, or the highest average, for a period of twenty consecutive minutes, 
the taking of such excess shall thereafter constitute an obligation on the 
part of the Corporation to pay for, and on the part of the Commission to 
hold in reserve, such increased quantity of power in accordance with the 
terms and conditions of this contract. 

When the power factor of the highest average amount of power taken 
for said twenty consecutive minutes falls below 90 per cent., the Corporation 
shall pay for 90 per cent, of said power divided by the power factor. 

(/) To use at all times first-class, modern standard commercial apparatus 
and plant, to be approved by the Commission, and to exercise all due skill 
and diligence so as to secure satisfactory operation of the plant and appar- 
atus of the Commission and of the Corporation. 

(g) To co-operate by all means in its power at all times with the Com- 
mission to increase the quantity of power required from the Commission, 
and in all other respects to carry out the objects of this agreement, and of 
the said Act. 



14 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

3. This agreement shall remain in force for thirty (30) years from the 
date of the first delivery of power under this contract. 

4. The power shall be alternating, three-phase, having a periodicity of 
approximately 60 cycles per second, and shall be delivered as aforesaid at 
a voltage suitable for local distribution. 

5. The engineers of the Commission, or one or more of them, or any other 
person or persons appointed for this purpose by the Commission, shall have 
the right from time to time during the continuance of this agreement to 
inspect the apparatus, plant and property of the Commission, and to take 
records at all reasonable hours. 

6. The Commission shall at least annually, adjust and apportion the 
amount or amounts payable by the Municipal Corporation or Corporations, 
for such power and such interest, sinking fund, cost of lost power, and cost 
of generating, operating, maintaining, repairing, renewing and insuring 
said works. 

7. It is hereby declared that the Commission is to be a trustee of all pro- 
perty held by the Commission under this agreement for the Corporation and 
other Municipal Corporations supplied by the Commission, but the Commis- 
sion shall be entitled to a lien upon said property for all moneys expended by 
the Commission under this agreement and not repaid. At the expiration 
of this agreement the Commission shall determine and adjust the rights 
of the Corporations and other Municipal Corporations, supplied by the Com- 
mission, having regard to the amounts paid by them respectively, under 
the terms of this agreement, and such other considerations as may appear 
equitable to the Commission, and are approved by the Lieutenant-Governor 
in Council. 

8. If at any time any other Municipal Corporation, or pursuant to said 
Act, any railway or distributing company, or any other corporation, or 
person, applies to the Commission for a supply of power, the Commission 
shall notify the applicant and the Corporation, in writing, of a time and 
place to hear all representations that may be made as to the terms and 
conditions for such supply. 

Without discrimination in favour of the applicants, as to the price to be 
paid for equal quantities of power, the Commission may supply power upon 
such terms and conditions as may, having regard to the risk and expense 
incurred and paid, and to be paid by the Corporation, appear equitable to 
the Commission, and are approved by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council. 

No such application shall be granted if the said works or any part thereof 
are not adequate for such supply, or if the supply of the Corporation will 
be thereby injuriously affected, and no power shall be supplied within the 
limits of a municipal corporation taking power from the Commission at 
the time of such application without the written consent of such corporation. 

In determining the quantity of power supplied to a municipal corporation, 
the quantity supplied by the Commission within the limits of the Corporation 
to any applicant, other than a municipal corporation, shall be computed as 
part of the quantity supplied to such corporation, but such corporation shall 
not be liable for payment for any portion of the power supplied. No power 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 15 

shall be supplied by the municipal corporation to any railway or distributing 
company without the written consent of the Commission, but the Corporation 
may sell power to any person or manufacturing companies within the limits 
of the Corporation, but such power shall not be sold for less than cost, 
neither shall there be any discrimination as regards price and quantity. 

9. If differences arise between corporations to "which the Commission is 
supplying power, the Commission may, upon application, fix a time and 
place and hear all representations that may be made by the parties, and the 
Commission shall, in a summary manner, when possible, adjust such differ- 
ences, and such adjustment shall be final. The Commission shall have all 
the powers that may be conferred upon a commissioner appointed under the 
Act respecting Enquiries concerning Public Matters. v 

10. This agreement shall extend to, be binding upon, and enure to the 
benefit of the successors and assigns of the parties hereto. 

In witness whereof, the Commission and the Corporation have, respec- 
tively, affixed their corporate seals and the hands of their proper officers.

Commission at the time of such application without the written consent of 
such Corporation. 

In determining the "quantity of power supplied to a Municipal Corpora- 
tion, the quantity supplied by the Commission within the limits of the

j 

and 

The Municipal Corporation of the Police Village of Holstein, hereinafter 
called the " Corporation," party of the second part. 

Whereas the Corporation under the provisions of the Power Commission 
Act and amendments thereto, Revised Statutes of Ontario, Chapter 39 has 
applied to the Commission for a supply of power, and has passed a by-law 
No. 304, passed the 10th day of August, 1915, to authorize the execution of 
an agreement therefor. 

Now therefore this indenture witnesseth that in consideration of the 
premises and of the agreement of the Corporation herein set forth, subject to 
the provisions of the said Act and amendments thereto, the parties hereto 
agree each with the other as follows: 

1. The Commission agrees: 

(a) To reserve and deliver at the earliest possible date fifty (50) h.p., or 
more, of electrical power to the Corporation. 

(&) At the expiration of reasonable notice, in writing, which may be 
given by the Corporation from time to time during the continuance of this 
agreement, to reserve and deliver to the Corporation additional electric power 
when called for; 

(c) To use at all times first-class modern, standard commercial apparatus 
and plant, and to exercise all due skill and diligence so as to secure satis- 
factory operation of the plant and apparatus of the Corporation. - 



56 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

(d) To deliver commercially continuous twenty-four (24) hour power 
every day in the year to the Corporation at the distribution bus bars in the 
Commission's sub-station within the Corporation's limits. 

2. The Corporation agrees: 

(a) To use all diligence by every lawful means in its power to prepare 
for the receipt and use of the power dealt with by this agreement so as to 
be able to receive power when the Commission is ready to deliver same. 

(6) To pay annually in twelve (12) equal monthly instalments, interest 
upon its proportionate part (based on the quantity of electrical energy or 
power taken) of all moneys expended by the Commission on capital account 
for the acquiring of properties and rights, the acquiring and construction 
of generating plants, transformer stations, transmission lines, distributing 
stations, and other works necessary for the delivery of said electrical energy 
or power to the Corporation under the terms of this contract. 

To pay an annual sum for its proportionate part of all moneys expended 
by the Commission on capital account for the acquiring of the said pro- 
perties and rights, and the cost of the said construction, so as to form in 
thirty (30) years a sinking fund for the retirement of securities issued by 
the Province of Ontario. 

Also to bear its proportionate part of the line loss, and pay its propor- 
tionate part of the cost to operate, maintain, repair, renew, and insure the 
said generating plants, transformer stations, transmission lines, distributing 
stations, and other necessary works. 

All payments under this clause shall be subject to adjustment under 
paragraph 6. 

(c) The amounts payable in accordance with clause 2 (&) shall be paid 
in gold coin of the present standard of weight and fineness, at the offices 
of the Commission at Toronto. Bills shall be rendered by the Commission 
on or before the 5th day, and paid by the Corporation on or before the 15th 
day of each month. If any bills remain unpaid for fifteen days, the Com- 
mission may, in addition to all other remedies, and without notice, dis- 
continue the supply of power to the Corporation until said bill is paid. No 
such discontinuance shall relieve the Corporation from the performance of 
the covenants, provisoes and conditions herein contained. All payments in 
arrears shall bear interest at the legal rate. 

(d) To take electrical power exclusively from the Commission during 
the continuance of this agreement. 

(e) To pay for three-fourths of the power ordered from time to time by 
the Corporation, and held in reserve for it, as herein provided; whether it 
takes the same or not. When the highest average amount of power taken 
for any twenty (20) consecutive minutes during any month exceeds during 
the twenty consecutive minutes three-fourths of the amount ordered by the 
Corporation and held in reserve, then the 'Corporation shall pay for this 
greater amount during the entire month. 

If the Corporation during any month takes more than the amount of power 
ordered and held in reserve for it, as determined by an integrated peak, or 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 57 

the highest average, for a period of twenty consecutive minutes, the taking 
of such excess shall thereafter constitute an obligation on the part of the 
Corporation to pay for, and on the part of the Commission to hold in reserve, 
such increased quantity of power in accordance with the terms and condi- 
tions of this contract. 

When the power factor of th6 highest average amount of power taken 
for said twenty consecutive minutes falls below 90 per cent, the Corporation 
shall pay for 90 per cent, of said power divided by the power factor. 

(/) To use at all times first-class, modern standard commercial apparatus 
and plant, to be approved by the Commission, and to exercise all due skill 
and diligence so as to secure satisfactory operation of the plant and appar- 
atus of the Commission and of the Corporation. 

(g) To co-operate by all means in its power at all times with the Com- 
mission to increase the quantity of power required from the Commission, 
and in all other respects to carry out the objects of this agreement, and ol 
the said Act. 

3. This agreement shall remain in force for thirty (30) years from the 
date of the first delivery of power under this contract. 

4. The power shall be alternating, three-phase, having a periodicity of 
approximately 60 cycles per second, and shall be delivered as aforesaid at a 
voltage suitable for local distribution. 

5. The engineers of the Commission, or one or more of them, or any other 
person or persons appointed for this purpose by the Commission, shall have 
the right from time to time during the continuance of this agreement to in- 
spect the apparatus, plant, and property of the Corporation, and take records 
at all reasonable hours. 

6. The Commission shall, at least annually, adjust and apportion the 
amount or amounts payable by the Municipal Corporation, or corporations, 
for such power and such interest, sinking fund, cost of lost power, and cost 
of generating, operating, maintaining, repairing, renewing, and insuring said 
works. 

7. It is hereby declared that the Commission is to be a trustee of all 
property held by the Commission under this agreement for the Corporations 
and other municipal corporations supplied by the Commission, but the Com- 
mission shall be entitled to a lien upon said property for all moneys expended 
by the Commission under this agreement and not repaid. At the expiration 
of this agreement the Commission shall determine and adjust the, rights 
of the Corporations and other municipal corporations, supplied by the Com- 
mission, having regard to the amounts paid by them, respectively, under the 
terms of this agreement, and such »ther considerations as may appear equit- 
able to the Commission, and are approved by the Lieutenant-Governor in 
Council. 

8. If at any time any other municipal corporation, or pursuant to said 
Act, any railway or distributing company, or any other corporation, or person, 
applies to the Commission for a supply of power, the Commission shall notify 
the applicant and the Corporation, in writing, of a time and place to hear 
all representatfons that may be made as to the terms and conditions for such 
supply. 



58 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

Without discrimination in favour of the applicants as to the price to be 
paid for equal quantities of power, the Gommission may supply power upon 
such terms and conditions as may, having regard to the risk and expense 
incurred and paid, and to be paid by the Corporation, appear equitable to 
the Commission, and are approved by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council. 

No such application shall be granted if the said works, or any part thereof, 
are not adequate for such supply, or if the supply of the Corporation will be 
thereby injuriously affected, and no power shall be supplied within the limits 
of a municipal corporation taking power from the Commission at the time 
of such application without the written consent of such Corporation. 

In determining the quantity of power supplied to a municipal corporation, 
the quantity supplied by the Commission within the limits of the Corporation 
to any applicant, other than a municipal corporation shall be computed as 
part of the quantity supplied to such corporation, but such corporation shall 
not be liable for payment for any portion of the power supplied. No power 
shall be supplied by the municipal corporation to any railway or distributing 
company without the written consent of the Commission, but the Corporation 
may sell power to any person or persons, or manufacturing companies within 
the limits of the Corporation, but such power shall not be sold for less than 
cost, neither shall there be any discrimination as regards price and quantity. 

9. If differences arise between corporations to which the Commission is 
supplying power, the Commission may, upon application, fix a time and place 
and hear all representations that may be made by the parties, and the Com- 
mission shall, in a summary manner, when possible, adjust such differences, 
and such adjustment shall be final. The Commission shall have all the 
powers that may be conferred upon a commissioner appointed under the Act 
respecting Enquiries concerning Public Matters. 

10. This agreement shall extend to, be binding upon, and enure to the 
benefit of the successors and assigns of the parties hereto. 

In witness whereof the Commission and the Corporation have, respectively, 
affixed their corporate seals, and the hands of their proper officers.

(hereinafter called the Commission), party of the first part; 

and 

The Municipal Corporation of the Police Village of Williamsburg (here- 
inafter called the Corporation), party of the second part. 

Whereas pursuant to An Act to Provide for Transmission of Electrical 
Power to Municipalities, and the amendments thereto, the Corporation ap- 
plied to the Commission to transmit and supply such power, and the Com- 
mission has entered into contracts with a company or companies for the 
supply of such power at the prices set forth in the schedule, hereto attached, 
and the Commission has furnished the Corporation with estimates, as shown 
in the schedule of the total cost of such power, and the electors of the Cor- 
poration assented to by-laws authorizing the Corporation to enter into a 
contract with the Commission for such power, and the Commission have 
estimated the line loss and the cost to construct, operate, maintain, repair, - 
renew and insure a line to transmit such power to the Corporation, and 
have apportioned the part of such cost to be paid by each Corporation as 
shown in said schedule. 

Now therefore this indenture witnesseth that in consideration of the 
premises and of the agreements of the Corporation herein set forth, subject 
to the provisions of said Act and the amendments thereto, and of the said 
contracts subject to any variations thereof by the Corporation, the Com- 
mission agrees with the Corporation respectively: 

1. (a) To construct a line to transmit the quantities of electric power, 
shown in column 2 of the said schedule, to the Corporation shown in

given by the Corporation from time to time during the continuance of this 
agreement, to supply from time to time to the Corporation in blocks of not 
less than 10 h.p. each, additional power until the total amount so supplied 
shall amount to 15,000 horse power, or such further amount as the Com- 
mission may be able and willing to supply. 

(d) To use at all times first-class, modern, standard commercial appar- 
atus and plant and to exercise all due skill and diligence so as to secure 
the most perfect operation of the plant and apparatus of the Corporation. 



<60 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

In consideration of the premises and of the agreements herien set forth 
each of the Corporations for itself, and not one for the other, agrees with

power taken for twenty consecutive minutes in any month shall exceed 
during such twenty minutes three-fourths of the amount to be supplied 
and held in reserve to pay for this greater amount during that entire 
month; the amount payable for a month being one-twelfth part of the 
annual rate applicable to the horse power in question. When the power 
factor of the greatest amount of power taken for said twenty minutes falls 
below 90 per cent., the Corporation shall pay for 90 per cent, of said power 
divided by the power factor. 

(h) To take no more power than the amount to be supplied and held in 
reserve at said date and upon said notices, as per paragraph 1 (c).

ject to test as to accuracy by either party hereto. 

y 

(6) The maintenance by the Commission of approximately the agreed 
voltage at approximately the agreed frequency at the point of delivery to 
the Corporation shall constitute the supply and the holding in reserve of 
all power involved herein, and the fulfilment of all operating obligations 
hereunder; the amount of the power, its fluctuations, load factor, power 
factor, distribution as to phases, and all other electric characteristics and 
qualities being under the sole control of the Corporation, its agents, cus- _ 

tomers, apparatus, appliances and circuits. 

5. The engineers of the Commission, or one or more of them, or any 
other person or persons appointed for this purpose by the Commission, shall 
have the right from time to time during the continuance of this agreement 
to inspect the apparatus, plant and property of the Corporation, and take 
records at all reasonable times on giving to the Corporation six hours' 
notice of the intention to make such inspection. The Corporation shall have 
a like right, on giving a like notice, to inspect the apparatus, plant and 
property of the Commission. 

6. In case the Commission or the Company shall at any time or times 
be prevented from supplying said power, or any part thereof, or in case 
the Corporation shall at any time be prevented from taking said power, or 
any part thereof, by strike, lock-out, riot, fire, invasions, explosion, act of 
God, or the King's enemies, or any other cause reasonably beyond their 
control, then the Commission shall not be bound to deliver such power dur- 
ing such time, and the Corporation shall not be bound to pay the price of 
said power at the point of delivery by the Company during such time, but 
the Corporation shall continue to make all other payments, but as soon as

the cause of such interruption is removed the 'Commission shall without 
any delay supply said power as aforesaid, and the Corporation shall take 
the same, and each of the parties hereto shall be prompt and diligent in 
removing and overcoming such cause or causes of interruption. 

7. If, and so often as, any interruption shall occur in the service of the 
Company, due to any cause or causes other than those provided for by the 
next preceding paragraph hereof, the Commission shall pay to the Corpora- 
tion as liquidated and ascertained damages, and not by way of penalty, 
their respective proportionate shares of whatever sum is payable to the 
Commission by reason of such interruption; and when the amount thereof 
has been settled, such sum may be deducted from any moneys payable by 
the Corporation to the Commission, but such right of deduction shall not 
in any case delay the said monthly payments, nor shall the Commission 
be subject to any other liability for any non-delivery. 

8. In case any municipal corporation, or any person, firm or corpora- 
tion which shall contract with the Commission or with any municipal cor- 
poration for a supply of power furnished to the Commission by the Com- 
pany shall suffer damages by the act or neglect of the Company, and such 
municipal corporation, person, firm or corporation would, if the Company had 
made the said contracts directly with them, have had a right to recover such 
damages or commence any proceedings or any other remedy, the Com- 
mission shall be entitled to commence any such proceedings or bring such 
action for or on behalf of such municipal corporation, person, firm or cor- 
poration, and notwithstanding any Statute, decision or rule of law to the 
contrary, the Commission shall be entitled to all the rights and remedies 
of such municipal corporation, person, firm or corporation, including the 
right to recover such damages, but no action shall be brought by the Com- 
mission until such municipal corporation, person, firm or corporation shall 
have agreed with the Commission to pay any costs that may be adjudged 
to be paid if such proceedings or action is unsuccessful. The rights and 
remedies of any such municipal corporation, person, firm or corporation 
shall not be hereby prejudiced. 

9. The Commission shall at least annually adjust and apportion the 
amounts payable by municipal corporations for such power and such in- 
terest, sinking fund, line loss, and cost of operating, maintaining, repairing, 
renewing and insuring the line and works. 

10. (a) If at any time, any other municipal corporation, or, pursuant 
to said Act, any railway or distributing company or any other corporation 
or person, applies to the Commission for a supply of power, the Commission 
shall notify the applicant and the corporation, party hereto, in writing, of 
a time and place, and hear all representations that may be made as to the 
terms and conditions for such supply. 

(&) Without discrimination in favour of the applicants as to the price 
to be paid, for equal quantities of power, the Commission may supply power 
upon such terms and conditions as may, having regard to the risk and 
expense incurred, and paid, and to be paid by the Corporation, party hereto, 
appear equitable to the Commission, and are approved by the Lieutenant- 
Governor in Council.

(c) No such application shall be granted if the said line is not adequate 
for such supply, or if the supply of the Corporation, party hereto, will be 
thereby injuriously affected, and no power shall be supplied within the 
limits of a municipal corporation taking power from the Commission at 
the time of such application, without the written consent of such corpora- 
tion. 

(d) In determining the quantity of power supplied to a municipal cor- 
poration, the quantity supplied by the Commission within the limits of the

1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 65 

The Legislature also passed the Act set out hereafter with reference to the 
" Public Development of Water Power at Niagara Falls." 

An Act respecting the Public Development of Water Power in the vicinity of 
Niagara Falls. 

Assented to 27 th April, 1916. 

WHEREAS the demand for the supply of electrical power or energy Preamble. 
in the district which may be served by power from the vicinity 
of Niagara Falls has so greatly increased that in order to obtain an 
adequate supply to meet the present and future demands of the muni- 
cipalities interested or that may be interested, it is necessary that new 
sources of power should be developed; and whereas the existing develop- 
ment works at Niagara Falls are inadequate for the development and 
supply of the required amount of power, the quantity of power now 
generated by them and available for use in Canada being exhausted; 
and whereas it is desirable that the work of development should be 
carried on upon an adequate scale in order to utilize to the fullest possible 
extent the available supply of water which may be diverted from the 
Niagara River under the terms of the treaty between the United States 
of America and His Majesty, the King; and whereas the Hydro-Electric 
Power Commission of Ontario, after investigation by its engineers, has 
reported to the Government upon a scheme for the development of a 
supply of power from the Niagara River and its tributaries, and has 
prepared estimates of the cost thereof; and whereas there has been a 
general demand upon the part of the inhabitants of the said munici- 
palities that the Government of Ontario should develop, through the 
Commission, power sufficient to meet the present and future require- 
ments of the municipalities which it is possible to serve from the neigh- 
borhood of Niagara Falls, and that in the meantime the Commission 
should procure on the best terms available such additional power as may 
be necessary to supply the requirements of the municipalities and furnish 
the same to the municipalities at the average cost of all the power 
supplied to the municipalities under Contract with the Commission; 
and whereas it is desirable that the said work of development should be 
undertaken and carried out as economically, efficiently, and expeditiously 
as possible, taking into consideration the financial and other conditions 
arising out of the present war, and to this end that it should be conducted 
by the Commission, and under the authority and direction of the Gov- 
ernment of Ontario, acting for and on behalf of the municipalities 
, which may be supplied with power from such development; 

Therefore His Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the ' 
Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario enacts as follows :- 

1. This Act may be cited as The Ontario Niagara Development Act. Short title.

any kind for use on the railway to an extent not exceeding ten per cent. 
(10%) of the bonds issued from time to time. In order to meet and pay 
such bonds and interest as the same becomes due and payable the Com- 
mission shall in each year after the expiration of ten years from the date

the Commission as collateral security for such increase of the said bond 
issue, and that any debentures held by the (Commission in excess of the 
par value of the outstanding bonds from time to time may ibe held or dis- 
posed of by the Commission to secure payment of any deficit arising from 
the operation of the railway. 

4. In the event of the revenue derived from the operation of the under- 
taking being insufficient in any year to meet the operating expenses (in- 
cluding electrical power), the cost of administration and the annual charges 
for interest and sinking fund on the bonds, and for the renewal of any 
works belonging in whole or in part to the railway, such deficit shall be 
paid to the Commission by the Corporations upon demand of and in the 
proportion adjusted by the Commission. In the event of the failure of any 
corporation to pay its share of such a deficit as adjusted by the Commis- 
sion, it shall be lawful for the Commission in the manner provided in 
clause 2 (&) to dispose of debentures held by the Commission as security 
for any such deficit. Any arrears by any Corporation shall bear interest 
at the legal rate. 

5. Should any Corporation fail to perform any of the obligations to the 
Commission under this agreement, the Commission may, in addition to all 
other remedies and without notice, discontinue the service of the railway 
to such Corporation in default until the said obligation has been fulfilled, 
and no such discontinuance of service shall relieve the Corporation in 
default from the performance of the covenants, provisoes and conditions 
herein contained. 

6. In case the Commission shall at any time or times be prevented from 
operating the railway or any part thereof by strike, lockout, riot, fire, 
invasion, explosion, act of God, or the King's enemies, or any other cause 
reasonably beyond its control, then the Commission shall not be bound to 
operate the railway or such part thereof during such time; but the Cor- 
porations shall not be relieved from any liability or payment under this 
agreement, and as soon as the cause of such interruption is removed the 
Commission shall, without any delay, continue full operation of the rail- 
way, and each of the Corporations shall be prompt and diligent in doing 
everything in its power to remove and overcome any such cause or causes 
of interruption. 

7. It shall be lawful for, and the Corporations hereby authorize the Com- 
mission to unite, the business of the railway with that of any other rail- 
way system operated in whole or in part by the Commission, and to ex- 
change equipment and operators from one system to the other, proper pro- 
vision being made so that each system shall pay its proportionate share of 
the cost of any equipment used in common. 

8. If at any time any other munlcpal corporation applies to the Com- 
mission for an extension of the railway into its municipality, the Com- 
mission shall notify the applicant and the Corporations, in writing, of a 
time and place to hear all the representations that may be made as to the 
terms and conditions relating to such proposed extension. If, on the 
recommendation of the Commission, such extension shall be authorized, 
without discrimination in favour of the applicant, as to the cost incurred 
or to be incurred for or by reason of any such extension, the Commission 
may extend the railway upon such terms and conditions as may appear 
equitable to the Commission.

expired. At the expiration of this agreement the Commission shall deter- 
mine and adjust the rights of the Corporations, having regard to the 
amounts paid or assumed by them respectively under the terms of this 
agreement, and such other considerations as may appear equitable to the 
Commission and are approved by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council. 

15. It is understood and agreed that the rates imposed for the share of 
the cost to be borne by those municipalities listed in Schedule "C" attached 
hereto, shall be imposed upon the rateable property set forth respectively

94 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

RIGHT-OF-WAY 

High Tension Lines 

The work of ; the staff during the early part of the year was devoted to com-l 
pleting the purchase of the right-of-way for the second High Tension Trans- 
mission Line rom Niagara Falls to Dundas, and this work is practically completed. 

Work was commenced in September on the purchase of lands necessary for 
the Chippawa-Queenston Development. Owing to the route of this work passing 
through lands in the Township of Stamford, which have 'been largely devoted (to 
fruit growing and gardening, the holdings in the majority of cases being small 
and quite valuable, the work of . acquiring these lands has necessarily been rather 
slow, but considerable progress has been made, and it is anticipated that the work 
will be completed before spring. In all it will be necessary to acquire about one 
hundred and twenty-five parcels of land owned by different parties "for this right- 
of-way. 

Plans have been completed and the work of purchasing the right-of-way com- 
menced on the duplicate line from Dundas to Toronto. An additional purchasing 
agent, who will devote his time to this work during the coming winter, has been 
added to the staff, in order that delay in acquiring the needed lands in this case 
may be avoided. 

The Commission now owns its own right-of-way through twenty-two townships 
and five urban municipalities, and in no case has it been necessary to resort to 
arbitration in order to acquire the lands desired. The Department has endeavoured 
to maintain a policy of uniform prices, and has met with comparatively little 
opposition from the owners of the lands sought to be purchased. 

Low Tension Lines 

On account of the large mileage of Low Tension Lines constructed during the 
past season, the whole time of one member of the staff, and at times of two, has 
been required to secure the necessary tree trimming and pole rights for this work. 

CROSSINGS 

The construction of high-tension and low-tension lines during the year has 
made it necessary to obtain the permission of various steam and electric railways, 
telegraph, telephone and power companies for crossings, to the extent of 300. In 
each case it was necessary to prepare applications and blue prints and forward the 
same to the different companies for approval and consent. Where consent is not 
given the matter is placed before the Board of Eailway Commissioners for a ruling, 
all of which necessarily entails a considerable amount of work. 



AGREEMENTS 



During the fiscal year agreements for a supply of power have been made with 
the Cities of Sarnia and Kingston ; the Towns ,of Dunnville and Forest ; the Villages 
of Point Edward, Tara, Watford, Arthur, West Lome, Milverton, Wyoming, Oil 
Springs, Rodney, Grand Valley and Omemee, and the Police Villages of Burgess- 
ville, Dashwood, Dublin, Highgate, Otterville, Springfield, St. Jacobs, Alton, and 
Zurich, and the Townships of York, Scarboro, Brant, Bentinck and Artemesia.

SECTION II 

TRANSMISSION SYSTEM 

STEEL TOWER TRANSMISSION LINES 
Surveys 

DUNDAS-TORONTO 

During the early part of 1916, a great deal of reconnaissance work was done in 
the district between Dundas and Toronto, in order that the most suitable location 
possible might be found for a second steel tower line. 

On June 10th, 1916, a survey party commenced work at Dundas, and made a 
very complete survey from there to the Humber river. This location survey was 
completed late in October, and the party is now engaged in taking levels for a 
profile of the entire line. 



STATION EQUIPMENT AND BUILDING DEPARTMENT 

GENERAL 

StatiorT Construction . 

During the year just closed the following stations which were referred to in 
the last report as having been authorized have been completed and placed in service : 
Linden, Listowel, Milverton, Harriston, Palmerston, Kidgetown, Blenheim, Petrolia, 
Exeter, Eugenia, Owen Sound, Chatsworth, Chesley, Durham, Dundalk, Mount 
Forest, South Falls, Huntsville. 

The construction of stations was authorized during the year at Tavistock, 
Hanover, York, Etobicoke, West Lome, Kilsyth, Orangeville, Port McNicoll 
(C.P.E.), Forest. 

Changes for addition of transformers or switching equipment or both have been 
made, or authorized, for several of the transformer and distributing stations, these 
being necessitated by increase of load on the station in the majority of cases and by 
additional feeders being required in others. These alterations and additions are 
described later in this report. 

The progress on design and construction of stations has not been as satisfac- 
tory as in past years, owing to conditions arising from war. At the time of writing, 
promises of delivery of equipment of six to eight months (where formerly two to 
three months were promised) are the rule. Furthermore, the high cost of materials 
and equipment is unprecedented. At the present time, contracts are placed for 
certain pieces of apparatus at double the prices that we were able to purchase same 
for two or three years ago. 

Administration Building 

The Administration Building described as being constructed in previous report 
was completed and the transfer of offices from the Continental Life Building was 
effected as conditions in the new building would permit, the executive offices moving 
in on April 1st. 



96 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

It was thought that the Administration Building would provide sufficient 
quarters for several years. When the layout was prepared, each department was 
provided with at least three times the floor space which it had at that time in the 
Continental Life Building. However, the phenomenal growth of the Commission 
and the addition of the Central Ontario System has necessitated increasing the staff 
to such an extent that some of the departments are now utilizing all the space 
available. 

A garage, with accommodation for three motor cars, was constructed on the 
property to the rear of the building to house motor cars for office use. 

Toronto Storehouse Extension 

The Stores Department, Laboratory and garage have all outgrown their 
quarters, and it was decided to proceed with the construction of an addition to the 
Toronto Storehouse and Laboratory. The extension is being made 132 feet deep, 
the full length of the present building. Beinforced concrete, flat slab construction, 
with brick curtain walls is being used. The extension will provide for a garage 
approximately 108 feet long by 66 feet wide, providing accommodation for about 
24 motor cars. A machine and repair shop, the same dimensions as the garage, 
immediately over same, will be provided. The top story of this portion of the 
building will be used as a carpenter and paint shop. The interior portion of the 
building, 66 feet by 108 feet with basement and three floors, will be used exclusively 
for stores. 

The entire basement, first and second floors of the present building will be 
remodelled and converted into laboratory accommodation. 

Tenders were called for the construction of the building extension and the 
contract awarded to Messrs. Witchall & Sons, in the early fall. At the time of 
writing, excavation has been completed and the majority of the concrete footings 
have been poured. 

Central Ontario System 

When the Electric Power Company's interests were acquired, all drawings and 
designs available were transferred to this Department for use in connection with 
any extensions which might be decided upon. 

Niagara Development 

Several conferences were held with representatives of the electrical manufac- 
turing companies with regard to the special features of the plant. Preliminary 
specifications for the main generators and transformers were issued to the different 
manufacturers and at the present time they are engaged in preparing designs which 
will enable them to more intelligently prepare tenders when our detailed specifica- 
tions are issued. Conferences have also been held regarding special mechanical 
features of the generating station. 

Public Utilities Commission of Peterboro 

Preliminary designs were prepared for a proposed transformer station for the 
municipality. However, it was decided that this work be held up for the time 
being, at least.

Cobden Municipal Generating Station 

Plans and specifications were prepared for the electrical equipment for a 
generating station for the village of Cobden. The contract for the generator and 
exciter was placed with the Canadian General Electric Company, who also furnished 
the 3-k.w. station service transformer, and for the switchboard and connecting 
material with the Northern Electric Company. 

The generator is rated at 100 kv-a., 2,300-volt, 3-phase, 60-cycle, 720 r.p.m., 
and is direct connected to a turbine. The belt-driven exciter is of 5-k.w. capacity 
at 125 volts. 

The switchboard consists of one panel with automatic oil switch and full com- 
pliment of meters, including one Westinghouse type "KO" watthour meter for 
measuring the output of the plant. 

The contracts were awarded in May, and it is expected that equipment will be 
placed in operation in a short time. 



NIAGARA SYSTEM 

NIAGARA FALLS TRANSFORMER STATION 
Building Extension 

In order to provide improved facilities for handling equipment such as has 
been contracted for for this station, an extension to the erection room was authorized. 
This extension will also provide space for the equipment required for supplying 
12,000 volt power to local municipalities and office space for different departments 
having duties in or around the station. This new addition will be approximately 
30 feet wide by 84 feet long by 33 feet high. The work is being done by Messrs. 
Wells and Gray, the contracting firm which built the recent extension. 

12,000 Volt Feeders 

The two feeders, each composed of two 300,000 CM. 3-conductor, lead-covered 
and steel-tape armored cables, referred to in the last report, were installed during 
the past summer. These connect our station with that of the Ontario Power Com- 
pany. They will be utilized as spare feeders, and are designated No. 10 and No. 11. 

For the purpose of receiving power from the Canadian Niagara Power Com- 
pany a cable system consisting of eight 350,000 CM. 3-conductor, lead-covered and 
steel-tape armored cables will be provided. This line will run on a private right of 
way from our station in a south-easterly direction to the brow of the hill overlooking 
the river near Falls View Station of the Michigan Central Eailway, thence across 
this railway right of way and through the Queen Victoria Niagara Falls Park to a 
manhole at the south-western corner of the Generating Station of the Canadian 
Niagara Power Company. The cables for this system will be supplied and installed 
by the Standard Underground Cable Company. Two cables will comprise a feeder, 
and each feeder will be capable of delivering 12,500 horse power. The cables will 
be laid directly in the earth with creosoted plank above to prevent mechanical 
injury. Where cables cross highways they will be drawn into cast-iron soil pipe 
arranged with ventilators. It is expected to have at least one of these feeders in 
service early in December, 1916, installation work having already been started. 



98 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

Additional Electrical Equipment 

No. 7 bank of 110,000-volt transformers, consisting of three 3,500-kv-a. units, 
was installed and made ready for service in September. This equipment is similar 
to that installed for No. 5 bank and No. 6 bank, and was mentioned in previous 
report. 

No. 3 bank of 45,700-volt transformers, consisting of three 3,500-kv-a. units, 
was contracted for with the Canadian General Electric Company. Two of these 
have been shipped, and work is progressing on the installation. The Canadian 
Westinghouse Company are supplying the switching equipment for this bank, and 
installation work is proceeding. This equipment is similar to that previously 
installed for banks No. 1 and No. 2. 

Owing to additional capacity being required to meet the increasing loads, 
tenders were asked for and the Canadian Westinghouse Company were awarded the 
contract for three '7,500-kv-a. 12,000/63,500-volt transformers, forming No. 8 bank 
of transformers on the 110,000-volt bus, together with the necessary 12,000-volt and 
110,000-volt switching equipment. These were the largest size units that could be 
placed in the space available in the building. When this bank is installed, the total 
capacity in this station in 110,000-volt transformers will be 96,000-kv-a. with one 
spare 3,£00-kv-a. unit extra. It is expected that this No. 8 bank will be completed 
early in 1917. 

Switching Equipment 

In addition to the switching equipment above referred to as being supplied by 
the Canadian Westinghouse Company, this company will also supply the 12,000-volt 
and other equipment required for handling the four feeders from the Canadian 
Niagara Power Company, and the two spare armored cable feeders from the Ontario 
Power Company. 

Bus and Switch Cell Structures 

The contract for the construction of the necessary concrete cell work for the 
12,000-volt oil switches and bus bars on above equipment was awarded to Messrs. 
Wells and Gray and this work is being proceeded with. 

Water System 

A contract was awarded to Messrs. Wells and Gray for the construction of a 
third sprinkling tank to take care of the increased amount of cooling water neces- 
sitated by the increase in the number of transformers in this station. The work 
on this tank has been started, and it is expected will be completed before the severe 
winter weather commences. 

Additional pumping capacity was deemed advisable and an order was placed 
with the Storey Pump and Equipment Company for an additional (No. 5) pump, 
same to have capacity of 600 Imperial gallons per minute. 

A 6-inch main running along Dixon St. to connect to the city water mains for 
emergency supply of water was installed by the Operating Department. 

Protection of Service 

Further studies are being made of possible methods of protecting and bettering 
the service. The incoming feeders from the Canadian Niagara Power Company

will be arranged so that at a later date we will be able to operate with two indepen- 
dent busses, that is, with duplicate feeder and transformer switches. The installa- 
tion of power limiting reactors is also being investigated. 

Niagara Falls Distributing Station 

It was decided to designate equipment required for supplying 12,000-volt power 
locally as " Distributing Station/' although it is housed in the same building with 
Transforming Equipment. It is desirable for accounting purposes to keep them 
separate. 

Equipment, consisting of thr-ee 100-kv-a. Westinghouse transformers with oil 
switch and meters, was temporarily installed to supply the Niagara Falls water- 
works with 2,200-volt power for pumping purposes. Also work is under way on 
outgoing feeder equipment for supplying 12,000-volt power to the City of Niagara 
Falls, also to the Township of Stamford, by the date when their present contract 
expires. The permanent equipment for this service will be placed in the building 
extension referred to above. 

Welland Municipal Station 

Three Canadian Westinghouse Company's 150-kv-a., 13,200/2,300-volt, single- 
phase transformers were purchased from the St. Thomas Light, Heat and Power 
Commission. These transformers were received at Welland early in October. The 
switching equipment for these transformers was purchased and installed by the 
Welland Hydro-Electric Power Commission and the transformer bank was placed 
in service on October 30th. 

Port Robinson Distributing Station 

The Standard Steel Construction Company at Port Robinson have been receiv- 
ing 12,000-volt power from the Commission at their sub-station, which contained 
three 60-kv-a., 13,200/220-volt single-phase transformers and switching equip- 
ment for two incoming 12,000-volt lines, for the above transformers and for the 
220-volt feeders to their steel plant. This station and equipment was purchased by 
the Commission. 

An additional bank of transformers and two 2,300-volt feeders have since been 
installed in this station. These transformers were purchased from the Dundas 
Hydro-Electric System, and consist of three 75-kv-a., 13,200/2,300-volt, 25-cycle, 
single-phase, self-cooled transformers. The new switching equipment was purchased 
from the Canadian General Electric Company. One feeder is used for feeding 
2,300-volt, 3-phase power to the Standard Steel Construction Company and the 
other feeder for 2,300-volt, 3-phase local distribution service for the Welland Hydro- 
Electric Commission. 

One of the 12,000-volt incoming lines has been disconnected from the station 
and arrangements have been made to tie these two lines together outside the station 
by means of a horn gap 3-pole disconnecting switch in each line. 

This station was placed in service on October 13th. 

Niagara-on-the-Lake Municipal Station

Erection Room 

The transformer erection room in this station is being enlarged to accommo- 
date 5,000-kv-a. transformers, and a pit is being made in order to obtain necessary 
headroom. A new transformer truck is also being ordered. 

Water Main 

A 6-inch connection to the city of Toronto water main on Exhibition Koad was 
made to the water system in this station in order to assure water supply for cooling 
the transformers during progress of work by the Toronto Harbor Commission, which 
is expected to interfere with the intake to the present pump house on the Lake Shore. 

Drain 

A connection is being made between the storm sewer on Strachan Avenue and 
the Toronto Hydro-Electric System's cable duct line manhole, which is a few feet 
north of the station. A tap will be taken off this connection and connected to the 
transformer water-cooling system and also to the storehouse. 

No. 5 Transformer Bank 

On December 16th, a contract was placed with the Canadian General Electric 
Company for three 5,000-kv-a., 63,500/13,200 volts, 25-cycle, oil-insulated, water- 
cooled, single-phase transformers, together with the 110,000-volt and 13,200-volt 
switching equipment for connecting this bank of transformers to the existing busses. 
The layout of the switching equipment is similar to that for the existing 2,500-kv-a. 
transformers, except that the 13,200-volt equipment was of heavier carrying capacity. 
These 5,000-kv-a. units were the largest that could be placed in the space available 
in the building and will be installed during the winter. 

Changes to Transformer Banks No. "3 and No. 4 

On August 15th a contract was placed with the Canadian General Electric 
Company for six 5,000-kv-a., 63,500/13,200-volt, 25-cycle, oil-insulated, water- 
cooled, sino-lc-phase transformers. Three of these are promised for shipment in 
August, 1917, and the other three in Qctober, 1917. The contract will be placed 
within a short time for the necessary 13,200-volt switching equipment and connect- 
ing material to change or replace the existing equipment to control the additional 
transformer capacity. The above transformer's will be used to replace the existing 
2,500-kv-a. transformers on bank No. 3 and 4. This will make a total station 
capacity of 60,000-kv-a. with one 2,500-kv-a. spare unit extra.

apparatus was ordered from the Canadian Westinghouse Company, and will be 
installed by the Commission's Construction Department. 

The 550-volt leads from this second bank of transformers will run to a new 
feeder panel to be supplied by the St. Mary's Portland Cement Company. 

WOODSTOCK TRANSFORMER STATION 

The corrugated sheet steel shed referred to in last report was completed. Plans 
are being considered for extending this station to accommodate equipment for a 
second 110,000-volt line. 

ST. THOMAS TRANSFORMER STATION 
No. 2 Bank of Transformers 

A contract was placed with the Canadian Westinghouse Company in April for 
the 110,000-volt and 13,200-volt switching and metering equipment for the second 
bank of three 750-kv-a., 63,500/13,200-volt transformers. This second bank com- 
prises two transformers from Guelph Transformer Station, which were delivered 
and installed in this station by the Maintenance Department in March, and the 
original spare transformer in this station. 

The installation work was completed by the Commission's Construction 
Department and the second bank was placed in service July 30th. 

Additional Feeder Equipment 

A contract was placed with the Canadian Westinghouse Company, April 6th 
for complete switching and metering equipment for two additional 13,200-volt 
feeders, including lightning arresters. One of these feeders will be in the old 
station and one in the new extension. The switchboard panel in the old station 
will line up as far as possible with the present Canadian General Electric switch- 
board. The installation work will be done by the Commission's Construction 
Department when material is received. 

Railway Supply Eqipment 

Considerable time has been spent in obtaining data and studying the operation 
of 1,500-volt D.C. rotary converters on railway work, and this is being continued. 

In order to better sectionalize the feeder system, three 1,000-ampere S.P.D.T. 
and one 1,000-ampere S.P.S.T. 1,500-volt disconnecting switches were purchased 
from the Canadian Westinghouse Company, Limited, and installed in 1,500-volt 
feeders. This work was completed early in August. 

Two electrolytic lightning arresters were purchased in August from the Cana- 
dian General Electric Company, and it is the intention to connect these directly 
across the commutators of the two 500-kw. rotary converters in this station to give 
increased protection to the windings. 

St. Thomas Municipal Station 
Building 

At the request of the St. Thomas Hydro-Electric Commission, plans and speci- 
fications were prepared for the construction of a combined office and sub-station. 
Tenders were called for and submitted to the local Commission, who awarded the 
contract to Mr. A. E. Ponsford, of St. Thomas, in February. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 107 

The building, which is 40 feet by 80 feet, is located, on the south-west corner 
of St. Catharine and Gas Streets. It is built of red pressed brick with buff-colored 
Indiana limestone trim. Steel window sash, reinforced concrete floors, and steel 
beam construction were used throughout, making an entirely fireproof building. 
The front part of the building is partitioned off for offices on all floors, the space 
occupied being 37 feet wide by 20 feet 1 inch deep inside. The building will be 
completed early in December. 

Electrical Equipment 

The electrical equipment is located at the rear of the offices, occupying a space 
of approximately 37 feet by 55 feet 6 inches on each floor. The 13,200-volt 
apparatus is located on the second floor, the main transformers, constant current 
transformers, rotary convertor and switchboard on the main floor, and the cables 
and service transformers in the basement, which will also be used for storage 
purposes. 

The station is fed by two 13,200-volt incoming lines and has one 13,200-volt 
outgoing feeder with provision for a second outgoing feeder, all these being equipped, 
with Canadian Westinghouse electrolytic lightning arresters. These feeders are 
connected through choke coils, disconnecting switches and oil switches to a section- 
alized bus, and from this bus leads are taken through oil-switches to three 100-kv-a. 
13,200/375-volt, single-phase Canadian Westinghouse transformers and two new 
750-kv-a., 13,200/2,300-volt, three-phase, Canadian General Electric transformers. 
Provision was also made for a future three-phase transformer. From the 100-kv-a. 
transformers the 375-volt leads are taken in conduit to a 200-k.w., 600-volt D.C. 
rotary convertor, which feeds the local street railway circuit. 

From the, 750-kv-a. transformer, leads are carried in conduit to the 2,300-volt 
busses Hback to the main switchboard on the main floor from which the following 
feeders are taken out in conduits underground, three commercial lighting, one 
2,300-volt power, two 550-volt power feeders and five series street lighting feeders 
with provision for several future feeders. The 550-volt power is obtained from 
three 30-kv-a., 2,300/550-volt, single-phase~Packard Electric Company's trans- 
formers installed in the basement. Three 28-k w. Adams Bagnall, and two 22-k w. 
Canadian Westinghouse constant current transformers are used for the series light- 
ing feeders. The main 2,300-volt busses are sectionalized to allow for the future 
installation of a regulator if found necessary. 

Three 25-kv-a., 2,30 0/22 0/110-volt transformers located in the basement and 
connected to the 2,300-volt busses through expulsion fuses supply light, heat and 
power for the station and office. 

As much as possible of the electrical equipment from the old station was used 
in the new station, but in addition to the new 750-kv-a. transformers and the 25-kv-a. 
service transformers mentioned above, it was found necessary to purchase a number 
of new switchboard panels, meters and relays from the Canadian Westinghouse 
Company. 

The equipment in the new station is being installed by the Commission's con- 
struction staff in conjunction with the local Commission's staff in such a way that 
no serious interruption of service is necessary. One 750-kv-a. transformer was 
installed in the old station and put in service temporarily on September 20th, 
releasing one old bank of three 150-kv-a. single-phase transformers which were 
disposed of to the Welland Hydro-Electric Commission for use in the W^elland 
Municipal Station. It is expected that the installation will be entirely completed 



108 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

early next year, the progress not being as rapid as expected, owing to slow deliveries 
of material and the necessity for maintaining service during the transfer to the new 
building. 

West Lome Distributing Station 
A type " E-2 " station was authorized for West Lome to supply power to West 
Lome and to Rodney. The contract was awarded for the building to Messrs. Horton 
Bros., of St. Thomas, on October 14th. This station is to contain three 75-kv-a., 
13,200/2,300-volt transformers with two outgoing 4,000-volt feeders, each of 100- 
kv-a. capacity, one to supply West Lome and the other Eodney. The contract for 
the electrical apparatus was given to the Canadian Westinghouse Company. It is 
expected that this station will be placed in operation before January 1st, 1917. 

COOKSVILLE TRANSFORMER STATION 

The corrugated sheet steel shed referred to in previous report was erected. 
Plans are being considered extending this station to accommodate equipment for a 
second 110,000-volt line. 

Mimico Distributing Station 

Owing to increasing demand for power, it was found necessary to put in addi- 
tional transformer capacity in the Mimico Distributing Station.- As the plans 
under consideration for this district contemplated the erection of a new larger 
station, it was decided to install the additional transformers required in a temporary 
extension to the existing building. 

Three 300-kv-a., 13,200/2,300-volt, 25-cycle, single-phase transformers of 
Johnson and Phillips make were purchased from Chapman and Walker (in liquida- 
tion) for this station, but, owing to the necessity for overhauling them, they could 
not be made ready for service in time, and arrangements were finally made to pur- 
chase from the corporation of Brampton three 150-kv-a., 13,200/2,200-volt Crocker 
Wheeler Company's transformers. The temporary building extension was erected 
and the 150-kv-a. transformers installed and the necessary wiring changes made by 
the Commission's construction staff. These additional transformers were placed in 
service on October 15th. 

Etobicoke Distributing Station 

This station will be constructed in New Toronto village and will be used for 
supplying power to Mimico, New Toronto and the Provincial Institutions in the 
neighborhood. Tenders have been called for the supply of two 1,500-kv-a., 3-phase 
transformers for this station. This station will be supplied from Cooksville Trans- 
former Station at 13,200 volts, but is so designed that it can later be fed from the 
proposed York Transformer Station at 26,400 volts. 

In a former report " Etobicoke Distributing Station n was mentioned. This, 
however, referred to a proposed station in the vicinity of Mimico Asylum, which was 
never constructed, and the switching equipment ordered for same was used else- 
where, partly at Port Robinson Distributing Station and partly at Paris Municipal 
Station (McFarlane Engineering Company). 

Pending construction of the above new station, a temporary station will be 
erected to take care of the immediate requirements for a supply of power to Brown's 
Copper and Brass Rolling Mills at New Toronto. It is proposed to use here the 
three 300-kv-a. Johnson and Phillips transformers referred to above under Mimico 
Distributing Station. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 109 

Brampton Municipal Station 

At the request of the corporation of Brampton, tenders on three 300-kv-a.,

Camp Borden Municipal Station 

Owing to the Commission having contracted to supply the Department of 
Militia and Defence with power for Camp Borden, a distributing station was 
authorized. Drawings were immediately prepared for a combined type " G " dis- 
tributing station and pump house. The pump house which was 40 feet by 45 feet, 
and the distributing station, were built of brick by the Department of Militia and 
Defence, according to the plans prepared by the Commission. 

The switching equipment was purchased by the Commission from the Canadian 
Westinghouse Company and consisted of one 22,000-volt type " E " oil switch 
with the necessary high-tension material, and two 2,200-volt feeders, with meter 
equipment for measuring the power on the 2,200-volt side of the transformers. 
The transformers were of Canadian Westinghouse Company's make, rated at 125- 
kv-a. 22,000/2,2 00-volt, 60 cycle, single-phase, and were purchased from the Pine 
Eiver Power Company. There was also installed one 22,000-volt electrolytic light- 
ning arrester, purchased from the Canadian General Electric Company. All of

1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 123 

LOW-TENSION TRANSMISSION LINES 

On October 31st, 1916, there were completed and under construction 1,321 
miles of low tension transmission lines, of voltages varying from 46,000 volts to 
2,200 volts. 

The mileage of these lines is distributed among the various systems as follows : 
Niagara System — 840.32 miles. 
St. Lawrence System — 66.35 miles. 
Severn System — 102.94 miles. 

WasdelPs Falls System— 65.85 miles. ' ' 

Eugenia Falls System — 219.41 miles. 
Muskoka System — 26.32 miles. 
In the construction of these lines, 8,960 miles of wire, weighing 5,513,923 
lbs., and 54,372 wood poles were used. 

On the transmission line poles 1,126 miles of single circuit telephone lipe 
has been erected for use in operating the system. 

During the year 10 gangs were employed, 2 of which, under the direction of a 
forestry expert were employed solely in . trimming trees. These gangs constructed 
229 miles of transmission lines as well as distributing systems in 7 towns and 
villages, and rural lines in 5 townships. 

For the above lines 230 crossing plans were prepared and submitted to 
telephone and railwa} r companies for approval. 

The low tension distributing systems were constructed by the commission 
in the towns and villages of Chesley, Shelbourne, Victoria Harbour, Markdale, 
Holstein, Orangeville, Grand Valley, and rural lines in the townships of Toronto, 
Etobicoke, Vaughan, Grantham and Zone. 

Although handicapped by a scarcity of labour, and difficulty in obtaining 
material, some important lines were successfully constructed in record time, to the 
great satisfaction of the communities benefitted thereby. Among these are Barrie 
Tap to Camp Borden, Eugenia Falls to Collingwood, and Niagara Falls to Ontario 
Power Company's Line.

140 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

SECTION III 
OPERATION OF THE SYSTEMS 

NIAGARA SYSTEM 

The operation of the Niagara System for the year 1916, was attended with 
gratifying success. In no other year, and especially since the war commenced, have 
the lines and apparatus of this system been called upon for such extraordinary duty. 
This condition was occasioned by the rapid recovery of industry together with the 
enormous development of the manufacture of war munitions in Canada. 

During the months of November to April, inclusive, and from' July to October, 
power was purchased for transformation and transmission from two, and indirectly 
three sources, the supplying plants being linked together by the Commission's 
Transforming Station at Niagara Falls. On April 30th, the temporary contract 
with the Toronto Power Company expired, and from this date until July 26th, when 
the first generating unit from the Canadian Niagara Power Company was con- 
nected, the total load of the Niagara System was carried by the Ontario Power 
Company. On August 21st, a second unit at the Canadian Niagara Power Com- 
pany's Plant was parallelled with the first, and from this date until the end of 
October, the amount of power available from this company amounted to approxi- 
mately 25,000 horse-power. As these generating stations were operating at maxi- 
mum capacity, extreme caution was necessarily exercised in the operation of the 
system in order to preserve equilibrium at all times. Due credit is extended to the 
Ontario Power Company for the satisfactory service received during the year. 

Electrical storms during the past year were much more frequent and severe 
than in previous years. The Niagara System was subjected to these storms on 
sixty different days. On eight days these storms traversed practically the entire 
system, and were particularly severe. The balance of the storms traversed only 
portions of the system, mainly in the Niagara Peninsula, Preston, Stratford and 
Chatham Districts, and were more or less severe. No total system interruption 
occurred from lightning causes during the summer, and when it is considered that 
the Commission has in operation approximately 1,200 miles of high and low tension 
lines overstreching a strip of Ontario approximately 215 miles long and averaging 
60 miles wide, all lines being subjected to the accumulation of electrical discharges, 
which must be dissipated by passage to ground, the efficiency of the protective 
apparatus is strikingly evident. 

Work of a special nature carried out by the Line Maintenance Depart- 
ment, and required by reason of the rapid increase of load, included the erection of 
a temporary 12,000 volt double circuit pole line of No. 4/0 copper conductor 
between the power house of the Canadian Niagara Company's station and a point 
(on the present line between the Hydro and Toronto Power Company Trans- 
forming Stations) approximately 1,800 feet south of the Commission's station. 
Both circuits of this pole line are still in service pending the installation of the 
balance of the underground feeders to the Canadian Niagara Power Company's 
plant. 

The erection of a fourth No. 4/0 copper, three-phase circuit 15.5 miles long, 
on the 46,000 volt tower line between Niagara Falls and Welland was completed 
and placed in operation. 

The single or three-phase circuit of No. 2 aluminum between the High 
Tension station and the Municipal Station at Dundas was replaced with a double 
circuit of No. 4 copper. Two 13,200 volt air break switches were erected in these

lihes at the entrance to the John Bertram and Sons Foundry, and also near the 
Dundas Municipal Station for the control of the line of the village of Lynden. 
The wood pole line from the Dundas High Tension to the City of Hamilton, which 
was replaced by a steel tower line during the summer of 1915, was taken down, and 
the material placed in stock. 

Short stretches of single circuit 26,400 volt lines were constructed to supply 
the Lake Erie and Northern Railway Company's sub-stations at Brantford and 
Simcoe, from the outgoing circuits of Brant High Tension Station. This work 
also included the erection of telephone lines and instruments, and the installation 
of an air break switch at the Company's Simcoe sub-station. 

The wood pole Low Tension Line entrances at London and St. Thomas, and 
at the Weston Municipal sub-station were remodeled to accommodate new lines 
erected in these districts. In view of the many new customers added in the Strat- 
ford District, and the length of line necessary to serve them, it has been decided to 
raise the transmission voltage in this district from 13,200 to 26,400. To this end 
considerable re-arranging of the power and telephone lines was carried out in pre- 
paration for this change. For sectionalizing purposes two air break switches were 
erected at Mitchell in the double circuit line between Stratford and Seaforth. The 
telephone line between Stratford and Sebringville Junction was doubled by the 
erection of a circuit of No. 9 iron wire. 

Some re-location of the 13,200 volt line feeding the Mimico Distribution 
Station from the Cooksville High Tension Station was necessary, due to the con- 
struction of the Toronto-Hamilton Highway. The portion of line affected extended 
from Port Credit to New Toronto. 

A twenty-five "pair" lead covered telephone cable approximately 13,500 feet 
long, was installed between the High Tension Station and the Commission's new 
office building at Toronto. The cable was laid in the Toronto Hydro-Electric 
System duct line to the corner of Queen and William Streets and from thence to 
the office building on the concrete poles. 

Few failures of any of the electrical or mechanical equipment of the High 
Tension stations occurred during the year. As the Commission, in common with 
other enterprises in Canada, was severely handicapped in obtaining delivery on 
additional apparatus required to cope with the abnormal demand for power, the 
present equipment in some of the stations was subjected to overload for short 
periods, but without any depreciating results. The difficulty, mentioned above 
was partially met by the transfer, where feasible, of transformers from one station 
to another. One of the more important changes of this nature was the transfer 
of two 750 kv-a transformers from Guelph to the St. Thomas station. 

The Commission now employs a staff of nine highly trained meter experts 
whose regular duties consist of the periodic calibration and adjustment of the 
various types of graphic recording and indicating instruments located in the Com- 
mission's stations. 

These men also attend to the setting and adjustment of all relays used to 
protect the Commission's lines and equipment. 

Considerable time has been spent in perfecting refinements in connection with 
the measurement of power, which has been to a great extent apparently considered 
unnecessary heretofore by the majority of other organizations. These refinements 
extend from the periodic comparison of the Commission's portable standard 
meters with ultimate standards to the determination of the characteristics of 
instrument transformers of various types.

The services of the meter inspectors may also he requisitioned hy any of the 
Commission's customers to inspect or adjust metering and relay equipment, or to 
conduct special measurements of any loads with regard to which the customer is 
desirous of obtaining particular information. 

A long felt want was realized in the erection of the storehouses on the High 
Tension Station ground during the summer. These buildings will accommodate 
maintenance materials of a bulky nature. This work, together with the building 
of suitable approaches, was done under the supervision of the operators. Outside 
lights surmounting concrete poles were installed at Dundas, London and Kent 
High Tension Stations, with pleasing effect. Considerable improvement in 
appearance was accomplished in grading the grounds surrounding the High 
Tension Stations, and re-surfacing of the roads through the grounds _from the 
highway. 

A concrete roadway approximately 300 feet long and 6 inches thick, was laid 
across the flats at Preston, from the fair grounds to the Hydro-Electric Power 
Commission's Property. It is expected that this roadway will be unaffected by the 
heavy spring floods in this vicinity, which previously rendered impassable the 
original gravel topped roadway. An increase was made in the supply of cooling 
water for this station by the sinking of a well just outside the station, and the 
installation of a deep well pump for pumping the water directly into the cooling 
system. The supply originally obtained from the small creek in the flats had 
latterly become inadequate. 

The tables given below show the load demands of the various municipalities 
as well as the increase during the year. 

The plotted curve on another page shows the monthly increase in the load 
supplied from October, 1910, to October, 1916.

146 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

SEVERN SYSTEM 

The Commission's generating station at the Big Chute on the Severn River 
was overtaxed toward the middle of the fiscal year by the relatively large increase 
of the power demand of this district, as on the Niagara System, the increase in 
load resulting from the same cause. The steps taken to remedy this condition 
will be mentioned later. 

The operation of the generating station, sub-stations and transmission lines 
was very satisfactory and the increased load was taken care of in a very creditable 
manner. The Trent Valley Canal contractors completed certain work on the canal 
scheme in the vicinity of the generating station which greatly benefited the control 
of the head and tail water at this plant. Other special maintenance work was 
carried out by which the hydraulic regulation was improved. 

A slight change was effected in the construction of the power and telephone 
lines of the Power House-Waubaushene Section where these lines cross Matcheash 
Bay, by the erection of an "A" frame structure with rock crib foundation to shorten 
this long span. This has eliminated trouble which was previously experienced at 
this point during 1 very severe wind storms. 

The temporary 22,000-volt pole type inters witching station at Waubaushene 
was moved to a new location on the Commission's property and altered slightly in 
design. The change was made to accommodate additional lines built from this 
point and for more efficient control of all lines from this operating centre. 

The work commenced in October, 1915, on the stringing of a second telephone 
circuit between Waubaushene and the power house was completed and placed in 
operation in the late fall. The additional rod of right-of-way acquired on each 
side of the line from Midland to Penetang was cleared of trees through the bush 
section of that line. 

Two new customers were connected to the Severn System lines during the 
year. Camp Borden, the new military training grounds prepared by the Depart- 
ment of Militia and Defence, was first supplied with power on June 29th, when the 
water pumps and the camp lighting was put in operation. The camp sub-station 
is fed over a single circuit of No. 6 copper tapped by means of airbreak switches on 
to the main transmission lines near the Barrie sub-station. 

The elevator of the Canadian Pacific Eailway at Port McNicoll was first 
supplied with Hydro power on July 25th. The Company's station is fed from a 
double circuit of No. 1/0 aluminum from the Midiand-Penetang main line, which 
was double circuited from Waubaushene to this point during the summer. This 
company is being supplied with approximately 1,000 h.p. of off peak power at 575 
volts during the season of navigation, in addition to approximately 250 h.p. for the 
operation of wharf machinery, lighting, etc., which will be utilized throughout the 
entire year. Below will be found a list of the demands of the various municipalities 
in October, 1915 and 1916, and the increase during the year.

EUGENIA SYSTEM 

The second generating station which the Commission has constructed was 
placed in official operation by Sir Adam Beck on November 18th when the muni- 
cipalities of the Eugenia System received Hydro power for the first time. The 
service supplied on this system has quite fulfilled the Commission's expectations 
in every way. 

The hydraulic and electrical features of the generating station have been 
given detailed description in previous reports. 

The transmission system now comprises 195 miles of 22,000-volt and 24 miles 
of 4,000-volt lines. The municipalities now served on this system are Owen 
Sound, Mount Forest, Durham, Dundalk, Flesherton, Chatsworth, Markclale, 
Holstein and Chesley. 

On June 13th a part of the Pine River System which was acquired by the 
Commission was connected to the Eugenia System by means of a thirty mile tie line 
built between Dundalk and Shelburne. The municipalities thus supplied were 
Orangeville, Shelburne and Homing's Mills. While satisfactory service was 
delivered since the acquisition of this system, the Commission is taking steps to 
place it on a par with the operating condition of the balance of the Eugenia 
System. This will consist of the erection of new sub-stations at Shelburne and 
Orangeville and complete renovation of the 22,000-volt lines between these points. 
The future outlook for this portion of the Eugenia System is very bright. 

The actual operation and maintenance of the Eugenia System is carried on 
jointly by co-operation with the municipalities supplied. The success of this 
scheme was no exception to that enjoyed on the other northern systems. 

Below will be found a tabulation showing the date of connection, initial load 
and load taken in October, 1916, of the municipalities on this system.

NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 48 



WASDELLS SYSTEM 

^While the power demand of the municipalities fed from the Wasdells System 
does not indicate the same growth which characterized the operation of some of 
the other systems, very satisfactory progress was maintained. A thoroughly 
reliable and continuous service was provided. The power house, transmission lines, 
and sub-stations required no extensive repairs and are in first-class operating 
condition. 

The excess capacity available at the power house over what was required for 
serving the Wasdells System was very conveniently and economically utilized to 
take care of the increased power demand of the municipalities of the Severn System. 

A tie line between the power house and the Orillia substation at Longford, 
constructed during the summer, made this arrangement possible, and after parallel 
operation was commenced on July 24th, the Wasdells power house supplied an 
average load of 750 h.p. continuously throughout the balance of the year without 
difficulty. Thus the Big Chute generating station was relieved of the greater 
part of the power demand of the municipality of Orillia, at Orillia and at Longford.

1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMIS SION 151 

PARALLEL OPERATION OF THE SEVERN, EUGENIA 
AND WASDELLS SYSTEMS 

As mentioned above, some action became necessary to relieve the load conditions 
at the Big Chute generating station caused by the increase of the power demand 
of the municipalities fed from this plant. 

The first step in this direction was the erection of a 22,000-volt tie line of 
No. 1/0 aluminum, seven miles long, between the Wasdells power house and the 
sub-station belonging to the Municipality of Orillia at Longford. The balance of 
the circuit was completed by the existing Orillia 22,000-volt lines via the Orillia 
transforming and switching stations and the Big Chute plant. To complete tele- 
phone communication between the plant arrangements were made with Orillia to 
erect a telephone circuit on the power line poles between Orillia and Longford. 

The two plants were placed in normal parallel operation on July 2-1 th, the 
Wasdells plant supplying practically all the load previously taken by Orillia from 
the Big Chute plant in addition to the load taken by the municipalities of the 
Wasdells System. Thus the primary object was gained of loading the Wasdells 
plant to a degree of economical operation and reducing the load on the Big Chute 
plant. 

The power supply for the Severn System was further augmented by the parallel- 
ing of the Eugenia plant with the Big Chute plant. This was accomplished by the 
erection of a 22,000-volt tie line of No. 1/0 copper and No. 9 iron telephone circuit, 
twenty-four miles long, between the Eugenia power house and the Collingwood dis- 
tribution station. The tie line was built in an incredibly short space of time and 
power from the Eugenia plant was first supplied to the Severn System on October 
6th. Temporary metering equipment was installed at both the Wasdells and the 
Eugenia plants to measure the interchange of power. 

The parallel operation of these systems has been entirely satisfactory, with 
addedr security of service to all customers supplied therefrom. 

On another page will be found curves showing typical fall operating con- 
ditions for twenty-four hours with the three systems in synchronism. 

CENTRAL ONTARIO SYSTEM 

The operation of the Central Ontario System has been entirely satisfactory 
since passing into the hands of the Commission. On account of the various points 
of supply total interruptions to service are almost impossible and have seldom, if 
ever, occurred. The operation of equipment has been most successful, no failures 
of any importance having taken place. 

The steadily growing load at various points has necessitated some readjust- 
ment of equipment. One 750 k.v.a. transformer was moved from Port Hope to 
Oshawa, bringing the capacity of that point up to 2,250 k.w., and on account of 
the construction of tKe Government arsenal at Lindsay it was necessary to inter- 
change two 300 k.w. units at Lindsay for two 750 k.w. units from Cobourg. At 
other points equipment of less importance has been replaced by apparatus more 
suitable to existing load conditions than that formerly used. 

Practically all equipment which had become obsolete or unfit for service was 
scrapped and advantage taken of the high prices for scrap metals at present in 
force. Careful studies of the lines were made and whenever it was profitable the 
amount of conductor material was reduced to the most economical point. The 
material recovered in this way enabled almost all extensions necessary to be taken 
care of without delay and without the purchase of additional conductor.

NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 48 



While the growing load will undoubtedly soon overtake the present capacity of 
generating plants it has been possible to carry all load this year without taxing- 
equipment and with a conservative amount of reserve apparatus available. 

Loads at the various towns are shown in the table below and the curve of the 
weekly peaks shows the growth of load since this property has been under the 
control of the Commission. Another table shows the total output of the system 
for the current year and comparison of operation for the year 1915.

1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 153 

MUSKOKA SYSTEM 

The power development on the south branch of the Muskoka River at Muskoka 
Village which had been taken over from the Municipality of Gravenhurst was 
formally under operation by the Commission on November 1st. The purchase 
comprised the power site which had been partially developed by the municipality 
and the existing generating station and hydraulic works on the property. On 
November 1st power was being supplied to Gravenhurst at 6,600 volts and a small 
amount to Muskoka Village at 120 volts. 

The Commission immediately proceeded with the extension and remodelling 
of the generating station to place it in first-class operating condition and to 
deliver the power covered by contract with the Municipality of Huntsville. A 
detailed description of the new hydraulic and electrical equipment of the plant 
will be found in another section of the report. Every effort was exerted by the 
Commission to supply uninterrupted service during the alterations to the station. 

On August the 15th a 26 mile, 22,000-volt, No. 2 S.E. aluminum line to 
Huntsville distribution station was made alive for test. The sub-station was placed 
in operation permanently on August 25th. 

All construction details at the power house w r ere not completed at the end of 
October, which was due to the difficulty in obtaining reasonable delivery of 
materials. 

The peak load demands of the Municipalities of Gravenhurst and Huntsville 
for the month of October were 235 and 580 h.p. respectively. The Commission 
will be in a position to supply standard service and anticipates a very successful 
future for the Muskoka System. 



154 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

PORT ARTHUR SYSTEM 

Stead}- progress was made in the operation of the Port Arthur System 
during the past year. The increase in load was taken care of by loading the 
Current River Hydraulic Plant of the City of Port Arthur to its full capacity. 
Thus the Commission was not obliged to increase the present reserve dpmand 
of 2,600 h.p. from the Kaministquia Power Company. The Company's power 
supply to the Commission during the year was of the usual high standard. 

The total demand from both sources is approximately 5,100 horse-power at 
the present with indications of a, very material increase in the near future. 

The more uniform routine of operation established in 1915 whereby the 
load control of the Current River station was placed in the hands of the Com- 
mission's operators has proved very economical in every respect. 

The Hydro transforming sub-station is in excellent condition, and no 
failures were reported during the year. 

Plans and specifications were prepared and material ordered for the erection 
jof a wood pole line entrance and switching structure, at the transformer station 
to provide a means of sectionalizing the two 22,000 volt outgoing circuits to the 
grain elevators and to the waterworks station. This work will be carried out 
in conjunction with the Port Arthur Commission. Five air break switches will 
be installed on this structure. The Port Arthur Commission is proceeding with 
tjhe erection of two air break switches on each of the lines built to the elevators 
and to the waterworks station. When these installations are completed it will 
be possible to feed any one of the four elevator stations from either of the two 
outgoing 22,000 volt lines from the sub-station and will greatly increase the 
flexibility and security of the service on the high tension portion, of the system.

THE ST. LAWRENCE SYSTEM 

The operation of the Commission's system on the St. LaAvrence Kiver for the 
past year proved very successful. The service received from the hydraulic plant 
at Iroquois was thoroughly reliable and practically no interruptions occurred. A 
recent inspection of the Commission's sub-stations and lines shows that so far the 
depreciation of this system is quite negligible. 

The total load demand of the municipalities during the year increased to 1,000 
h.p., an amount considerably above the capacity of the generating station at 
Iroquois. This difficulty was temporarily solved by paralleling the municipal 
auxilliary steam plant at Brockville with the Commission's power supply purchased 
at Iroquois. 

The transpositions in the transmission line between Morrisburg and Prescott 
are being rearranged to remove the inductive effect which has interfered with 
the proper operation of the Bell Telephone Company's line paralleling this line. 
A series of very interesting tests from an engineering standpoint are being made in 
connection with this work.

SECTION IV 
MUNICIPAL WORK 

MUNICIPAL ADVICES 
Niagara System 

The Hydro-Electric enabling and money by-laws were submitted in: — 

Dashwood, Dublin, New Dundee, Forest, Hensall, Rodney, West Lome, Spring- 
field, St. Jacobs and Zurich. 

Estimates of the cost of supplying power to these municipalities have been 
forwarded by the Commission at their request. 

The work of building and remodelling the distribution systems in these muni- 
cipalities is being arranged for, and contracts with the Commission for power have 
been forwarded for signature. 

At the request of these municipalities arrangements are being made by the 
Commission to have their engineers supervise the construction and remodelling of 
distribution systems for these municipalities, and, as soon as the necessary trans- 
mission lines and distribution systems are completed, power will be supplied. 

Hydro-Electric enabling and money by-laws were submitted in : 

Burgessville, Exeter, Harrison. Highgate, Listowell, Milverton, Otterville, 
Palmerston, Wellesley and Wyoming. 

All of these by-laws carried by large majorities, and distribution systems 
were constructed under the supervision of the Commission's engineers, and power 
was turned on early in the year. All of these systems are now operating satis- 
factorily. 

Engineering advice was given and rates were forwarded to" the following- 
municipalities in connection with proposed extensions to rural customers, out- 
lining the necessary procedure to be .followed under which power could be supplied 
to petitioners in these townships : 

Ancaster Township, Barton Township, Biddulph Township, Blandford Town- 
ship, Blenheim Township, Brantford Township, Burford Township, Chinguacousy 
Township, Dover Township, East Flamboro' Township. Esquesing Township, 
Etobicoke Township, Enniskillen Township, Guelph Township, London Township, 
Raleigh Township, Sandwich East Township, South Dumfries Township, South- 
east Hope Township, Thorold Township, Tilbury Township, Tilbury East Town- 
ship, Toronto Township, Towensend Township. Vaughan Township, Waterloo 
Township, Wilmot Township, West Nissouri Township, West Oxford Township, 
Woodhouse Township. Yarmouth Township, York Township, Zone Township. 

The auditor's annual report shows that the operation of the systems in Ancaster, 
Blenheim, Comber, Dresden, Dundas, Ford City, Pt. Dalhousie, Sandwich and 
Thamesville has been very satisfactory, each of these systems showing a fair 
margin of profit for the year's operation. 

During the year engineering assistance, in connection with extensions to dis- 
tribution system and the taking on of new power customers, was given to the 
following municipalities : 

Ailsa Craig, Ayr, Baden, Beachville, Brantford, Caledonia, Delaware, Dor- 
chester, Dutton, Elmira, Elora, Embro, Fergus, Goderich, Hagersville, Lambeth, 
Lucan, Lynden, Mt. Brydges, Xew Hamburg, Paris, Pt. Stanley, Rockwood, Simcoe, 
Seaforth, St. George, Tilbury, Walkerville, Watford, Woodstock. 

The auditor's report shows that all of these municipalities have operated for

the year with a margin of profit, the number of lighting customers having been 
materially increased during the year, and the power consumption considerably in- 
creased, especially in those towns that are manufacturing large quantities of war 
munitions. 

During the year estimates were forwarded to the following municipalities : 
Agincourt, Amherstburg, Atwood, Brigden, Brownsville, Burlington, Chippawa, 
Crediton, Drayton, Essex, Harrow, Humberstone, Kerrwood, Kingston, Leaming- 
ton, Moorefield, Pt. Colborne, Scarborough Township. 

Acton 

During the year the Department assisted in obtaining two large additional 
power loads which will greatly increase the business done by this municipality. 
Engineering advice was also given in connection with necessary changes to the dis- 
tribution to take care of the increased load and of altered conditions in connection 
with the streets. 

Amherstburg 

During the year engineering assistance was given to the Municipality of 
Amherstburg in designing and supervising the remodelling of their street lighting- 
system. 

This system is now operating satisfactorily. 

Bothwell 

The Bothwell system shows a very satisfactory operating report for the year 
and in December a small oil pumping load was taken on. It is expected that a 
considerable amount of power will be sold in Bothwell district in the near future 
for oil pumping purposes. 

Brampton 

Owing to the marked increase in the power load it became necessary to in- 
crease the capacity of the municipal station, and at request of the local Commission 
assistance was given in the purchase of larger transformers to take care of the 
increased load. Assistance was also given from time to time in connection with 
various matters connected with the business. 

Burford 

The operating report for Burford for the }ear is very satisfactory and in 
September a considerable number of customers were taken on the system, owing to 
the fact that the local companies decided to discontinue service in Burford. 

Chatham 

The number of " Commercial " and " Domestic " customers iii Chatham 
shows a large increase for the year, and approximately 500 h.p. in motor loads has 
been connected to the system. The municipality has installed 120 b.p. in pump- 
ing motors at the municipal pumping plant. 

Clinton 

The Light and Power Department of the Utilities Commission reports a very 
favourable year with some additional lighting load and also extra power load. 



162 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

When the Hydro was first introduced at Clinton, a privately owned plant had con- 
tracts with various customers, which did not expire until 1916. One of these 
contracts necessitated the operation of the old steam plant at a considerable loss to 
the Department. This has now been changed over to Hydro power and the system 
is operating at a much higher point of efficiency. 
r 

Dereham Township 

A large number of rural petitions were received from the ratepayers in this 
township in the district between Tillsonburg and Brownsville, and also between 
Tillsonburg and Springford, and during the year a systematic canvass was made in 
these districts and sufficient contracts signed at the approved rates to warrant the 
Commission proceeding with the construction of the necessary lines to supply this 
power. 

Dunnville 

In September the Hydro-Electric enabling by-law and a money by-law for 
$53,000.00 were voted on by the ratepayers and passed by large majorities. 

At the request of the municipality a valuation was made of the local plant and 
distribution system belonging to the Dunnville Electric Light Company, and 
negotiations were entered into by the municipality through the Commission which 
resulted in the purchase of the company's plant by the municipality for $16,500.00. 

A contract with the Commission has been signed at the following rate: 







Cost per H.P. 


H.P. 


Delivered volts. 


per year. 


300 


45,700 


$27.77 



Gait 

The municipality has approved of the Commission supplying power at 12,200 
volts, instead of 6,600 volts, as at present, and arrangements will be made by 
the local Commission during the coming year to install additional transformer 
equipment to take care of the large increase in load. 

Grantham Township 

During the year engineering advice was given at various times in connec- 
tion with extensions to the Grantham Township system. The operation of this 
system is being handled by the St. Catharines Commission. 

Hamilton - 

A detailed report was prepared by the Commission's, engineers at the request 
of the municipality, in connection with the matter of placing the wires of all 
crossings in the business district under ground on the main streets. 

Arrangements have been made whereby the municipality will pay for and 
take over the 13,000 volt lines within the limits of the municipality, which lines 
were originally installed by the Commission to supply the waterworks with 
power direct. 

Hespeler 

Owing to the large increase in loads in the various municipalities in this 
district, after receiving the approval of the municipalities, the Commission has 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 163 

decided to supply power to Hespeler and other municipalities in this district at 
13,200 volts instead of 6,600 volts as at present. 

A full report in connection with this change was made hy the Commission's 
engineers and submitted to the municipality. 

Ingersoll 

The Commission, at the request of the municipality, has given engineering 
assistance in connection with the installation of an ornamental street lighting 
system on the Main Street, as well as engineering assistance in connection with 
other matters 1 regarding the operation of the system. 

London 

At the request of the municipality the Commission's engineers investigated 
the matter of interference between the lines of the Public Utilities Commission 
and the lines of the London Electric Company. A full report in connection with 
this matter was made and submitted. 

London Township 

On requests for petitions from the proof line district and that adjacent to 
Ettrick, arrangements were made and meetings held at which committees were 
elected to go on with the propaganda work in the districts referred to. 

Mitchell 

Arrangements are being made by the Commission to supply this municipality 
with power at 26,400 volts instead of 13,200 volts as formerly, and while this 
change is being made the municipality is advised to erect a new sub-station build- 
ing in which this equipment will be installed. 

The municipality has decided to discontinue the use of the 60-cycle steam 
plant, which will mean a considerable saving to the power and lighting users. 

New Toronto 

Contracts for large amounts of power have been made and assistance given 
by the Municipal Department in laying out extensions to the local system to serve 
these loads. 

The greatly increased demand will necessitate extensive additions to the 
transmission line supplying that municipality and will also necessitate the build- 
ing of a new and much larger transformer station. To meet the immediate de- 
mands, arrangements have been made and work commenced on the erection of 
temporary lines and stations, while engineering has been done on the permanent 
work. 

Niagara Falls 

Hydro rates were put into force in the municipality at the first of the year. 

In November^ the municipality's contract with the Ontario Power Company 
expired and from that date power was supplied oy this Commission. The lines 
connecting the municipal station with the Commission's high tension station, 
were in the most part purchased from the Ontario Power Co. Arrangements were 

12 H. 



164 NINTA ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

also made whereby the municipality purchased the sub-station equipment in the 
municipal station, which was the property of the Ontario Power Company. A 
number of estimates were prepared re cost of power to several large customers who 
were considering locating in the neighbourhood of this city. 

Niagara-on-the-Lake 

At the request of the municipality the Commission's engineers supervised the 
installation of new electrically operated pumps, as well as a new sub-station build- 
ing for same. 

Norwich 

During the year assistance was given to the municipality in connection with 
the installation of an ornamental street lighting system for the business section 
of the village. The operation of the system for the year shows a substantial in- 
crease in load and a considerable surplus. 

North Norwich Township 

At the beginning of the year forty-eight rural customers were being supplied 
with power, and during the year extensions have been made to Burgessville and 
also an extension to supply a number of farmers south of Newark. The township 
having signed a standard . township contract with the Commission for power, 
arrangements have been made to extend the township lines south from Newark and 
west from Burgessville. 

Hydro-Electric power for rural purposes in this township has proved a great 
success, as is shown by the number of farmers who have signed contracts during 
the year. 

South Norwich Township 

A large number of petitions have been received from petitioners in the Spring- 
ford district in this township, and during the year sufficient contracts were signed 
at the standard rural rates for the construction of a line running south of Newark, 
and arrangements are now being made for the construction of extensions to supply 
the consumers who nave signed contracts for power. 

Petrolia 

The distribution system in Petrolia, which was purchased from the Petrolia 
Utilities Company, was remodelled under the direction of the Commission's en- 
gineers and Hydro-Electric power was -first supplied to the municipality in the 
month of April. 

A considerable number of extensions were made to the system during the year, 
to supply power to various companies for oil-pumping purposes, and there is every 
indication that practically all of the oil pumping in this district will be done by 
Hydro-Electric power in the very near future. 

A complete street lighting system was put into operation, as well as an orna- 
mental lighting system on the main street, consisting of ornamental cast iron 
standards of the shepherd's crook type, equipped with 600 e.p. lamps. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 165 

Port Arthur 

Municipal operations in this city ran smoothly during the year and with little 
assistance from this office. Late in the year, however, the Commission was waited 
upon by a deputation composed of the Mayor and several of the Commissioners, 
who urged that Dog Lake be developed for Port Arthur. Many facts and figures 
were presented, showing the necessity for providing another source of power supply 
by the time the present Kam power contract expires in the spring of 1920. 

The deputation departed to follow out the suggestion made to them, namely, 
to submit a written petition to the Commission setting forth the facts in the case. 
Such a petition will doubtless be received within the coming year. 

Preston 

At the request of the municipality the Commission's engineers prepared and 
submitted a complete report in connection with the waterworks situation in the 
municipality. 

Engineering assistance and advice were also given in connection with various 
matters relating to the operation of the system. 

Ridgetown 

Arrangements were made whereby the municipality installed electric-driven 
pumps to operate some new wells in connection with its municipal pumping 
plant. These pumps were put into operation in November, 1916. 

Sarnia 

The Hydro enabling by-law and also a money by-law were passed by large 
majority at the municipal elections. 

The enabling by-law was for an amount of $120,000, which is the amount neces- 
sary to cover the first payment for the plant purchased from the Sarnia Gas and 
Electric Light Co., and also take care of the cost of remodelling that system. The 
plant purchased is being remodelled under the direction of the Commission's 
engineers and a complete street lighting system is being installed. Ornamental 
lamps are being installed on the main streets. A combination steel trolley pole 
and ornamental brackets being used. Lamps in the main street will be 20 ampere 
lamps of 1,000 candle power capacity. It is expected that the full amount of power 
contracted for will be required within the first year's operation of the system. 

Scarboro Township 

Acting on petitions received from the township, an investigation was made as 
to the possibility of supplying residents in the south-western portion of the town- 
ship with an electric lighting and power service, and estimates, together with rales 
for such service, were submitted. A number of public meetings were held and 
the Council appointed representatives to canvass the districts in question. As a 
result of this canvass some 215 contracts were secured. 

At the end of the fiscal year the Township Council was preparing to enter 
into an agreement with the Commission for the building of lines and the supply of 
electric power. 



166 NINTH ANNNAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

St. Catharines 

Arrangements were made whereby the Ontario Power Company has agreed 
to supply additional power to the municipality for a period of three years. Power 
to be supplied from the Ontario Power Company's transformer lines in the St. 
Catharines district. 

Approximately 1,000 customers have been added to the system during the year 
and arrangements have been made to supply power to a number of very important 
munition plants. 

St. Mary's 

The revision of the street lighting system and also the power plant, which were 
under way last year, have been completed. 

New power customers have been obtained and the operation during the year 
has been quite satisfactory. 

St. Thomas 

Owing to the large increase in loads on the system the municipality requested 
the Commission to prepare and submit specifications and drawings to the local com- 
mission for a new sub-station building, and additional equipment to be installed 
therein. 

At the request of the municipality the Commission's engineers supervised the 
erection of this building and the installation of the electrical equipment. 

Stamford Township 

At the request of the Township of Stamford the Commission negotiated with 
the Ontario Distributing Company and purchased for the municipality the Com- 
pany's lines, plant and system in the township outside of the limits of the City of 
Niagara Falls for the sum of $29,500.00, and the township submitted to the rate- 
payers the Hydro-Electric enabling by-law and a money by-law for an amount to 
cover the purchase of this system. 

The Commission is at present operating this system for the township until 
such time as legislation has been passed whereby the township can sell debentures 
and operate this system ; after which time the plant will be turned over to the 
township and the Commission reimbursed for the purchase amount. 

Stratford 

The load at Stratford station has increased to such an extent that it was 
decided to erect a new sub-station and contracts for the station and equipment 
have been let. The station when complete will be one of the most modern on our 
system and will have a capacity for a nominal load of 3,000 h.p. 

In the Water Works Department the year's business shows the completion of 
the revisions which were being carried out in the pumping plant and also the com- 
pletion of the new water tower. These additions are working out very satisfactorily 
to the city. 

The installation of gasoline driven pumps in place of steam as auxiliary to 
Hydro pumping shows a net saving of over $3,000 per year. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 167 

Strathroy 

During the year the local Hydro-Electric System and the waterworks system 
were placed under the management of a Utilities Commission, and the old steam 
pumps have been replaced with electrically operated centrifugal pumps for the 
domestic water supply, and a gasoline engine operated unit lias been installed as 
a stand-by for fire purposes. 

Tavistock 

During the year the Commission's engineers looked over the incorporated 
village's requirements for a distribution system and estimates were prepared show- 
ing the cost and submitted to the council. Estimates showing the cost of 4,000-volt 
power were also submitted and a contract was signed with this Commission for 
50 h.p. 

At the municipality's request the Commission's engineers supervised the 
installation of the system, all labour being employed locally. 

A small automatic domestic pump, driven by a single-phase motor, was in- 
stalled in the waterworks station to handle the pumping electrically. 

The local system was put into operation October the 26th. 

Tilisonburg 

During the year the municipality authorized the Commission to change its 
distribution system from 2,200 volts to 4,000 volts operation, in order that the 
surrounding rural districts might be supplied more advantageously at this voltage. 

Engineering assistance was also given by the Commission in connection with 
various matters regarding the operation of the system. 

Toronto 

During the year negotiations have been in progress in connection with the 
purchase of the lines and system of the Interurban Power Company lying east of 
the Humber, and it is expected that negotiations for the purchase of these lines 
will be completed early in the coming year. 

The auditor's report shows that in spite of the large cut in rates at the begin- 
ning of the year the system shows a good margin of profit for the year's operation, 
and the large increase in the number of power and lighting customers shows that 
the ratepayers in Toronto appreciate and patronize their own utility. 

Toronto Township 

During the year a number of extensions were made to the distribution system 
to serve additional customers, while sufficient new customers came on the existing 
lines to warrant a cut of 25 per cent, in the service charge. 

Walla ceburg 

During the year electrically operated pumps were installed and put into opera- 
tion in the new waterworks station, and also small sewage pumps to take care of the 
necessary sewage pumping in the municipality. 

The auditor's report for the year shows a substantial surplus for the year, and 
a number of large important power customers have been added to the system. 



168 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

Waterloo 

The auditors report for the year 1916 shows that the Waterloo Hydro-Electric 
System is operating very successfully from a financial standpoint, and arrange- 
ments are being made to have this municipality supply power to a rural line ex- 
tending north from the limits of the municipality in Waterloo Township. 

Waterloo Township i 

Various petitions have been received from farmers in the township for a supply 
of Hydro power and an extension from the Waterloo system is being constructed on 
King St. North and the Lexington Road, to supply some twelve farmers who have 
signed contracts with the township. 

Watford 

The Hydro-Electric enablingjby-law and a money by4aw for $10,000.00' were 
submitted to the ratepayers in August and passed by large majorities, and a con- 
tract was signed with the Commission for power at the following rate : 







Cost per H.P. 


H.P. 


Delivered volts. 


per year. 


100 


4,000 


$59 45 



Arrangements have been made to purchase the local distribution system for 
$2,500.00, and the municipality has requested the Commission to superintend the 
remodelling of this system to make it suitable for the distribution of Hydro-Electric 
power. 

Welland 

Arrangements were made to construct a new sub-station in the municipality 
according to plans prepared by the Commission's engineers. This station will be 
made so that power will be supplied at 2,200 or 13,200 volts, and station will have 
an ultimate capacity of approximately 10,000 h.p. The load on the Welland 
station has increased from 1,200 to approximately 2,100 h.p. during the year. 
Several very large munition plants are supplied from the Welland system. 

A number of estimates were prepared by the Commission's engineers re cost 
of power to large power customers who proposed locating in the Welland district. 

Weston 

Assistance was given the local Commission in various matters, particularly in 
securing a large power contract, while engineering advice was given in laying out 
and erecting the necessary additions to the system to provide for this load. 

Windsor 

During the year an extension was made to the system to supply the Muni- 
cipality of Ojibway, where a large steel plant is being constructed. It is expected 
that considerable power load will be obtained in Ojibway in the near future. 

York Township 

Many applications for electric lighting and power services were received during 
the year and estimates made on the costs of supplying these applications, while 
numerous extensions and additions were made to the distribution system. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTR IC POWER COMMISSION 169 

In order to place the business on a better basis and to relieve the Toronto 
Hydro System from a portion of the responsibility of supplying such service in 
the township, an effort was made to have the township enter into an agreement with 
the Commission for the necessary supply of power and the financing of trans- 
mission lines. This proved unsuccessful and as a result a number of applicants 
have been unable to secure the service. 



EUGENIA AND SEVERN SYSTEMS, 

Distribution systems, inclusive of street lighting, were designed, constructed 
and extended during the year in the following municipalities, under the super- 
vision of the engineers of the Department, and Hydro service given for the first 
time to such systems from the transmission lines of the Commission : 

Chatsworth, Chesley, Grand Valley, Holstein, Markdale, Orangeville, 
Shelburne. 

Distribution systems, construction work on which was begun during the latter 
part of 1915, were completed and placed in operation and given Hydro power for 
the first time in the following municipalities: 

Dundalk, Durham, Flesherton, Mount Forest. 

Valuations were made under the supervision of and by the engineers of the 
Department of privately owned electric light and power plants, distribution systems 
and transmission lines at the request of various municipalities. 

Valuations were made with the idea of purchasing the privately owned pro- 
perties for the purpose of incorporating same into the local Hydro-Electric Systems. 
These valuations were supplemented with estimates showing cost of power to the 
municipalities concerned, and also by special investigations for each locality in con- 
nection with load conditions. 

Alton: A valuation of distribution system. 

Grand Valley and Arthur: A valuation of steam generating plant, distribu- 
tion systems and transmission lines connecting the municipalities.

Grand Valley, Kincardine, Lucknow, Meaford, Paisley, Port Elgin, Priceville, 
Southampton, Tottenham, Teeswater,. Tara, Wingham. Wiarton. 



170 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

Petitions were received and estimates made up and submitted, covering the 
cost of power to various townships. Investigations were made as to load possibil- 
ities, public meetings were held, the Township Councils addressed by engineers of 
the Department and local committees appointed and rates submitted to these various 
townships as follows : 

Artemesia Township, Amabel Township, Brant Township, Bentinck Township, 
Derby Township, Essa Township, Euphrasia Township, Floss Township, Nottawa- 
saga Township, Proton Township, Sunnidale Township, Tiny Township, Tay 
Township, Vespra Township.

Installations of electric driven pumps were made and completed in the Towns 
of Collingw r ood and Mount Forest, and the installations in the other municipalities 
will be installed and completed early in the new year. 

Engineering assistance and advice was given to the following municipalities, in 
the nature of rate application, soliciting of power loads and new consumers, and 
other matters pertaining to the management and general operation of the utility, 
and an engineer of the Department visited each town and village from time to time 
for such purposes : 

Severn System — 

Barrie, Collingwood, Coldw r ater, Creemore, Elmvale, Midland, Penetang, Pt. 
McXichol, Stayner, Victoria Harbor, Waubaushene.

Notes on engineering assistance rendered other municipalities are given in 
the following: 

Alton 

During the year investigations were made and estimates prepared and sub- 
mitted covering the delivery of power to the Village of Alton and adjacent villages 
in the district. 

Estimates were also prepared covering the construction of a transmission line 
from Orangeville to Alton, to supply the Alton Foundry Company with power for 
the purpose of manufacturing munitions. An agreement was made with the Com- 
pany, the line constructed and power delivered for the purposes mentioned above. 

The Village is making preparations for submitting enabling and money by- 
laws to the ratepayers early in the new year, with the intention of taking over the 
transmission line and the Alton Foundry Company's load. 

Artemesia Township 

An agreement was made between the Township Council and the Commission 
covering Hydro service for farms and for the rural communities of Eugenia and 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 171 

Ceylon. Power was delivered to a large stock farm near Markdale under this agree- 
ment and from requests already received and investigations made the indications 
are that a large and important rural load will develop in the township and the 
surrounding district. 

Camp Borden 

Advice and information was given to the Department of Militia and Defence 
in connection with Hydro service for lighting", power, and waterworks systems at 
Camp Borden. 

An agreement was drawn up and submitted for supplying this power. 

A transmission line was const meted from a point near the Town of Barrie to 
the Camp site. 

A sub-station building and waterworks pumping plant were also designed and 
constructed for the Department of Militia and Defence, and power delivered for the 
operation of the Camp System in the month of June. 

East Luther Township 

Estimates w^ere prepared and submitted covering the delivery of from 1,000 to 
2,000 h.p. to a point in the township near the Village of Grand Valley, for the 
purpose of manufacturing peat, large deposits of which exist in paying quantities 
in that locality. 

The industrial growth in this district will be greatly stimulated by the use 
of Hydro power in such an industry. 

Hanover 

Valuations were made, at the request of the municipality, of the Hanover 
Electric Light Company's property, including the distribution system within the 
limits of the municipality and the transmission lines to the hamlets of Carlsruhe 
and Xeustadt, and the generating plant at Maple Hill. 

The municipality was given advice and assistance by engineers of the Depart- 
ment in the purchase negotiations for this property, prior to voting on a money 
by-law to provide debentures for such purpose. 

Estimates were made up and submitted to the municipality covering the cost 
of rebuilding the distribution system, which it was proposed to purchase from the 
private company, and also covering the construction of an entirely new and 
separate system. 

Estimates were made up covering the cost of supplying a large flour and 
milling company's property with power, independent of the municipality. An 
agreement was made between this company and the Commission, the transmission 
line and sub-station constructed and power delivered during the month of October. 
This line, station and contract will be taken over by the municipality as soon as 
the service can be given to same after by-laws have been submitted to the rate- 
payers for approval. 

Owen Sound 

Very creditable results from a financial standpoint were made by the opera- 
tion of the Hydro utility in this municipality during the year, so much so in fact 
that during the first six months of operation it was found possible to make a re- 
duction of 10 per cent, in rates charged to the consumers for lighting and power 
service. 



172 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

The new sub-station building and office building were completed and placed 
in service during the year. 

Orillia 

Negotiations were carried on between the municipality and the Commission, 
covering the sale of power from the Orillia-Swift Rapids Development, for use on 
the Commission's Severn system, and also covering the interchange of electric 
power and energy between the Commission's development at Big Chute, Eugenia 
Falls and Wasdell's Falls and the Orillia system. 

A short term agreement was also entered into between the Water and Light 
Commission of the Town of Orillia and the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of 
Ontario, covering the purchase by the town of 2,000 h.p. required for the use of 
munition plants in the municipality prior to the completion of the Swift Rapids 
Development. This agreement also provided for the joint use of transmission lines 
by both parties. 

Port McNichol 

An agreement was made between the Canadian Pacific Eailway Company and 
the Commission covering the supply of power for the operation of the Company's 
terminal and grain elevator at Port McNichol, and power was delivered under the 
agreement during the latter part of the month of July. 

The transmission line was constructed .and sub-station equipment installed in 
the Company's power house to take care of this load. 

At the present time the Company's peak load exceeds 1,000. h.p. and prepara- 
tions are already being made for installing new equipment to take care of increased 
loads during the coming year. 

Eugenia System — 

This system was placed in operation for the first time during the year, power 
for which being supplied from the Eugenia Falls hydraulic development. 

Power was first delivered to 5 municipalities when the development was placed 
in service on November 1st. Since that date service has been given to 6 additional 
towns and villages, making a total of 11 municipalities connected to the system 
at the close of the fiscal year on October 31, 1916. 

By-laws were submitted to the ratepayers and carried in four additional muni- 
cipalities and construction of distribution systems begun and/ were in progress at 
the close of the year. 

Assistance was also given to two municipalities, which will submit enabling 
and money by-laws during the early part of the coming year. 

The loads and revenue in the municipalities connected to the system during the 
year have greatly increased since connection to the system and the first delivery 
( of Hydro power, and the development at Eugenia Falls has been delivering its 
surplus capacity to the adjacent towns in Simcoe County and the Severn system. 

Plans are now progressing for an extension to the Eugenia plant to take care 
of these growing loads. 

The negotiations begun during the year 1915, covering the purchase of the 
transmission system, sub-stations and distribution systems of the Pine River Light 
and Power Company, were completed and this Company's properties taken over by 
the Commission and merged into the Eugenia system on May 1st, the following 
properties comprising this transaction being taken over : 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 173 

Orange ville distribution system and auxiliary steam plant by the municipality. 

Shelburne distribution system by the municipality. 

Twenty-five miles of 22,000-volt, single-circuit transmission line from Horn 
ing's Mills power house at Orange ville by the Commission. 

Homing's Mills distribution system and sub-station buildings and equipment 
at Shelburne and Orangeville by the Commission. 

The transformers, lightning arresters and other transmission equipment at 
the development by the Commission. 

Severn System — 

A remarkable growth in the load and revenue produced from same has been 
made by the Severn system during the past year. 

The capacity of the Big Chute -development serving the district was reached 
during the month of July, and connections were made to both the Wasdell's Falls 
and Eugenia Falls developments, in order that the demands for power in the Severn 
district might be taken care of satisfactorily. Practically all of the surplus power 
available in both of the latter generating plants is now needed to satisfy the power 
requirements of the district, and plans are being prepared for increasing the 
capacity of the Big Chute and Eugenia Falls plants, and also for new developments 
to take care of the increased and growing loads in the district. 



ST. LAWRENCE, EASTERN, WASDELLS, MUSKOKA, NORTH BAY 
AND PARRY SOUND SYSTEMS 

Numerous requests were received for a representative to investigate the 
requirements of a Hydro-Electric System and, in such cases, an engineer visited 
the municipalities and obtained the necessary information. Estimates, showing 
the figure at which power could be supplied to the municipalities, were forwarded 
by the Commission. A number of valuations and investigations, in connection with 
utilities have also been made for municipalities. 

Engineering assistance has also been given to a great many of the operating 
towns, on matters pertaining to rate application, economical operation of their 
local systems, and increasing the light and power business. 

During the year, work of the foregoing nature was taken care of by the 
department in the following municipalities: — Alexander, Arnprior, Aultsville, 
Bath, Billings Bridge, Brechin, Brock Tp., Carleton Place, Carp, Casselman, Cedar- 
hurst, Dysart, Emily Tp., Ernestown, Faraar Point, Harrowsmith, Kinbourne, 
Kinmount, Lanark, Lyn, Rear Leeds and Lansdowne, Manotick, Maple Grove, 
Mattawa, Monck Tp., Moscow, Newboro, Nipissing, North Gower, Perth, Powassan, 
Richmond, Roblins Mills, South Crosb} r , Sturgeon Point, Sydenham, Westport, 
Winchester Springs, Wood ville. 

Notes on engineering assistance rendered other municipalities are given in 
the reports following: 

Almonte 

Work on the remodelling of the municipal power plant and distribution 
system was begun in July, 1916. An addition was made to the power station, to 
accommodate a 250 K.V.A., 2,200-volt, generator and belted-exciter, and the 



174 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

existing penstocks, turbines, etc., were thoroughly overhauled and altered. The 
water wheel units were re-set, the main shaft extended, and the whole arrangement 

ngthcned by special castings and braces. 

The distribution system, which before had been direct-current, was remodelled 
for 2,200-volt, three-phase distribution, and an efficient system of series street 
lighting is being installed. The current from the new unit was turned on on 
October 14th. 

Aultsville 

Requests were received for estimates on a supply of power to Aultsville* 
Faraar Point, and the surrounding rural district. The municipality was advised 
that when the St. Lawrence system was extended as far as this district, it might be 
feasible to supply them with power. 

Beaverton 

The distributing station was repaired and put into first-class operating 
condition, and a set of 22,000-volt lightning arresters installed. Negotiations are 
under way for a supply of power to be delivered to the surrounding farming 
district, 

Bracebridge 

On request from the town officials, estimates were prepared on the cost of 
power to be delivered to the municipality from the Commission's South Falls 
plant. It is expected that the municipality will be in a position for further 
negotiations in the near future. 

Township of Brock 

Arrangements are being completed for a supply of power to the farms in the 
townships, — same to be distributed from the substation at Gamebridge. 

Brockville 

Requisitions have been received from several rural communities, for a supply 
of light and power, and some of these are being served by the municipality. 
Negotiations are at present under way for a further supply of power to the St. 
Lawrence system, and it is expected that load conditions in Brockville will shortly 
be much improved. 

Cannington 

The laying of the substation floor was completed, and the interior of the 
station painted. A set of electrolytic lightning arresters was installed, to replace 
the former mult i gap arresters. Negotiations are in progress leading to the supply 
of light and power to farmers in the surrounding district. 

Cobden 

At the request of the municipality, estimates were submitted on the cost of 
6uilding and equipping a local Hydro-Electric plant and distributing system. 
The money by-law was submitted to the people and passed on January 1, and work 
was commenced early in May. An efficient storage system was supplied by con- 
structing a conservation dam some distance above the site of the power house. The 
old regulating dam at the power house site was repaired and new head works, pen- 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 175 

stock and power house built, — the power house having adjoined to it a dwelling 
house for the operator. 

The power was first turned on on November 24th. The plant is operating very 
satisfactorily with a load of about 65 K.W. This development enjoys the distinction 
of being the smallest isolated development yet built by the Commission. 

A 135 h.p. Boving re-action turbine is direct-connected to a Canadian General 
Electric Company 100 K.V.A., 2,300-volt generator. A flywheel was supplied 
to improve regulation on the outgoing lines. 

Cornwall 

Exhaustive reports and estimates on the cost of a satisfactory supply of power 
to the town have been under consideration. Several requests have been received 
from residents and manufacturers for a supply of power to the town and surround- 
ing district. Investigations are at present under way, with a view to supplying 
this district from the Commission's St. Lawrence system, in the near future. 

Gamebridge 

Following the request from residents of this hamlet, estimates were prepared 
and submitted on the cost of the supply of light and power. Individual contracts 
were obtained from several residents. The distribution system will be built in 
the near future, as soon as the requisite by-laws are executed by the township 
officials. 

Gravenhurst 

The Commission has acquired from Gravenhurst all rights and titles to that 
town's generating system at South Falls on the South Branch of the Muskoka 
River, and also has made a contract with Gravenhurst for a supply of power there- 
from. The South Fails power house was remodelled and enlarged to serve Graven- 
hurst and Huntsville — the former, at 6,600 volts; the latter, at 22,000 volts. The 
plant was taken over and first operated by the Commission on November 1, 1915— 
the 6,600-volt transmission line to Gravenhurst being owned and maintained by 
the municipality. 

In August, the accounts of the Corporation were revised to conform with the 
standards of the Commission. 

Booster transformers have been installed on the municipality's incoming lines, 
to improve the regulation of the distribution system throughout the town. 

Huntsville 

Following the requests of the town officials, estimates were submitted on the 
cost of a supply of power to the municipality, and also on the cost of remodelling 
the distribution system, which, formerly, had been single-phase. In March, an 
agreement was executed for the supply of 800 h.p. from the Commission's plant 
at South Falls. "Work on the transmission line was begun early in the Spring, and 
this was carried on concurrently with the erection of a brick substation, and the 
renovation of the town distribution system. An up-to-date system of series street 
lighting was also installed. Power, was first delivered on August 24, 1916, being 
carried over the line from the Commission's South Falls plant, at a pressure of 
22,000 volts and stepped down to 2.200 volts at the new town substation, for dis- 
tribution. 



176 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

Iroquois 

Requests were received from the village Council for estimates on the cost 
of a supply of power to the municipality. After investigation, they were advised 
that it would be more feasible for them to remodel and operate their present plant, 
and this work has been undertaken by the municipality. 

Kemptville 

Estimates on the cost of supplying power to the Corporation of Kemptville, 
from a source of supply in Merrickville, were prepared and submitted, and a 
comprehensive survey made of the requirements in the village and surrounding 
district. 

Kingston 

In January, the Utilities Commission of Kingston sent in a request for 
estimates on the cost of power to the city. These were prepared and submitted, 
based on a supply of 1,500 h.p. On June 19th, in order that the urgency of tho 
situation might be met, the ratepayers voted to ratify an agreement for a limited 
supply of power to be brought in over an existing pole-line from Kingston Mills. 
On December 2nd, a contract for the supply of 1,200 h.p., to be delivered from the 
Commission's Ontario System, at a price of $28 per h.p., was ratified by the local 
Commission, and later passed by the Council. The transmission lines for the 
supply of this power are now in course of erection. 

During the year, the Municipal Accounting System of the city was, by request 
of the Utilities Commission, revised to conform with the standards of the Com- 
mission. 



Merrickville 

Early in the year, the Commission was requested for information as to the 
advisability of entering into a contract with the Rideau Power Company, for a 
supply of power to the municipality. After investigation, the village Council was 
advised against this action, as at that time proposed. A by-law was, however, 
passed, on submission to the ratepayers, and the village is now being supplied from 
the Rideau Power Company's generating station. 

A study of the water conditions on the Rideau River, is at present being made 
by the Commission's engineers, with a view to using power from this river for a 
comprehensive distribution system to supply the surrounding district. 

Mille Roches 

An industrial survey was made in the village, to ascertain the probable 
requirements of power and light for residents in the village and outlying district. 

Morrisburg 

Negotiations have been under way during the year, with a view to leasing 
the municipal generating plant, for use in supplying power to the St. Lawrence 
system. Detailed reports have been made, with a view to ascertaining the cost of 
the necessary repairs before the plant could be connected with the system. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 177 

North Bay 

The Nipissing Power Company, which supplies power to North Bay, 
was, in March, 1916, taken over by the Ontario Government and handed over to 
the Commission for operation in trust. This system is supplied from a generating 
station on the South River, near Nipissing Village. The power plant is equipped 
with two (2) three-phase, 450 K.W., direct-connected 2,200-volt units, with direct- 
connected exciters. The voltage is stepped up at the generating station to a 
pressure of 22,000 volts, and transmitted at this voltage to North Bay, Callander 
and Powassan, where it is, in each case, stepped down to 2,200 volts for distribution 
throughout the respective municipalities. In addition to the above, a 2,200 volt 
single-phase transmission line supplies light and power to the village of Nipissing. 

Estimates were prepared and submitted on the cost of installing a duplicate 
feeder to supply power to the Trout Lake pumping station for North Bay Water- 
works Department. 

Omemee 

Following requests received from the village -officials, estimates were submitted 
on the cost of a supply of power to be supplied from the Central Ontario System. 
An enabling by-law was presented to the people on January 1, 1917, and passed 
by a large majority. The proposed scheme includes the purchase and utilization 
of the present distributing system. An up-to-date series street lighting system will 
be installed. The distribution will be at a pressure of 4,000 volts, which provides 
for the extension of the lines into the surrounding rural districts without further 
transformation. 

Ottawa 

In February, the City Commission executed a contract with the Ottawa & 
Hull Power & Manufacturing Company, for a temporary supply of 750 h.p. 
Investigations are now being undertaken to ascertain the cost of developing 4,000 
additional horse-power capacity, at the Queen street station, to generate power 
for the proposed pumping plant at Lemieux Island. 

Parry Sound 

On request from the town officials, estimates were prepared on the cost of a 
supply of power to the municipality to be transmitted from Chaudiere Falls on the 
French River. Requests were also received for estimates on the cost of further 
developing the present town plant and conservation system, and for the supply 
of power to the Canadian Explosives Company, located at Noebel. Negotiations 
with this in view are at present under way. 

Engineering assistance has also been given to this municipality, in regard to 
the failure of certain apparatus. 

Prescott 

Exhaustive investigations have been made, to ascertain the probable future 
requirements of light and power for the town. 

Renfrew 

In November, 1915, the local Commission entered into a contract with the 
O'Brien Munitions Company, whereby they agreed to deliver to the Munitions 
Company a supply of 900 h.p. This, added to the existing load, made it 



178 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

imperative 1 that a further supply of power be secured. A timber dam was con- 
structed at Golden Lake, on the Bonnechere River, for conservation purposes, which, 
owing to the excessively high water in the Spring of 1916, had to be partly blown 
out. The Commission was approached re a further supply of power and, after 
investigating conditions, proposed an addition to the present plant, by adding a 
new turbine and generator. This the local Commision decided not to do, and 
asked for estimates on the cost of a separate supply of power. Accordingly, 
estimates were prepared on a supply to be transmitted from either the first and 
fourth chutes on the Bonnechere Eiver and, after consideration of the same, the 
scheme of developing the first chute was recommended. As a temporary source of 
supply, a second-hand generator was procured by the Commission and belted to the 
standi)}* steam engine in the municipal generating station. The by-law to enable 
the town to raise debentures of the first chute development was defeated on Sep- 
tember 2nd, by a small majority. In November, the town Council, with the 
approval of the Commission, purchased the holdings of the Eenfrew Electric Com- 
pany, — the same comprising a distribution system supplying light and power 
throughout the town. 

Smith's Falls 

» 

Estimates are at present being completed with a view to procuring a satis- 
factory system to supply Smith's Falls and surrounding district with light and 
power. Exhaustive surveys were made in the town and district, to ascertain 
industrial conditions and probable present and future loads. 

Sunderland 

The township of Brock is arranging for a supply of power to be distributed 
from the substation at Sunderland. 

Wasdeli's System 

The Xo. 1/0 aluminium wire at present supplying this system is being removed 
and steel wire installed in its place, thereby affecting a very appreciable decrease 
in the cost of power to municipalities connected with the system. 

Washago 

Negotiations have been carried on throughout the year for a supply of light 
and power to the village. After industrial surveys were made and estimates pre- 
pared, it was decided that the load is as yet too small to warrant the building of 
a necessary transmission line distribution system. 

Winchester 

Repairs and improvements have been completed in connection with the 
Winchester substation. A satisfactory increase in power load has been procured for 
this section of the St. Lawrence system by the addition of the new condensed milk 
plant in the village of Chesterville. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 179 

CENTRAL ONTARIO SYSTEM 

The generating stations, transmission lines and distributing systems formerly 
controlled and operated by the Electric Power Company, Limited, and its sub- 
sidiary companies are comprised in the system now known as the "Central Ontario 
System." The territory served extends from Whitby to Napanee on the south 
and froin Lindsay to Sulphide on the north. 

All the holdings of the Electric Power Company were purchased by the 
Province of Ontario, as of March 1st, 1916; the purchase being confirmed by Act 
of Legislature, known as the Central Ontario Power Act, which is reproduced in 
its entirety on page 89. 

As provided in the Act, the system was operated for several months by the 
staff of the Electric Power Company, as agents for the Province. By Order-in- 
Council, dated May 5th, 1916, the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario 
was charged with the operation of the property, and this obligation was assumed 
by the Commission on June 1st, 1916. 

The electrical system is briefly described in the following pages, and in 
addition to this the property purchased by the Province, and now administered by 
the Commission, includes a number of gas plants and waterworks systems, and one 
electric railway, all of which will receive further mention on succeeding pages. 

Generating Stations 

Power is obtained from six generating stations on the Trent river, which 
are operated by the Commission, and which have the capacities indicated in the 
accompanying table. In most cases the concrete dams constructed by the Depart- 
ment of Pailways and Canals in connection with the Trent Valley Canal are 
utilized for the power developments, and future developments to be made on the 
river will also utilize other similar dams located at various points between Trenton 
and Fenelon Falls. 

In addition to the generating stations operated by the Commission, further 
supplies of power are obtained from the generating station of the Corporation of 
the Town of Campbellford at Dam No. 12, to the extent of 1,250 K.W., and from 
the Peterborough Hydraulic Power Company, from whose station at Dam No". 
17, 1,120 K. W. is obtained.

The control of the flow of the river is being constantly improved, and it is 
hoped that still greater success will attend the efforts being made, to utilize to the 
fullest extent, the natural storage basins in the Trent Valley, thus securing a 
uniform and unfailing supply of electric power at all seasons of the year. 



Transmission Lines - 

The diagram on another page will indicate clearly the extent and nature of 
the transmission system. Operation is conducted at 44,000 volts on most of the 
network, the exceptions being the line between Fenelon Falls and Lindsay, which 
operates at 11,000 volts, and the line connecting Dam No. 2 and Dam No. 5, which 
operates at 6,600 volts. All future developments at and in the neighbourhood 
of Trenton, will operate at this voltage, and will all feed into a switching and 
transformer station at Dam No. 2, where the voltage is stepped up to 44,000 volts 
for transmission. The total length of transmission lines is 285 miles. Additional 
lines -will be constructed for the improvement of voltage regulation, and the 
duplication of service to safeguard against interruptions.^ Wooden poles are 
used throughout. 

Substations 

The following substations are connected to the transmission system and 
step-down the voltage to distribution or utilization voltage. Three-phase trans- 
formers are used entirely for capacities of 300 K.V.A. or larger. 

The substation at Osbawa contains, in addition to transforming equipment, 
a stand-by unit consisting of a 400 K.W. generator, direct connected to a 615 H.P. 
Diesel oil engine. This unit is not used except when necessary in case of inter- 






1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 181 

ruptions, but is kept in readiness at all times, and can be placed in operation in 
a very few minutes.

Municipalities Served 

The distributing systems, instead of being owned and operated by the Muni- 
cipalities as on the Niagara and other systems, are operated directly by the Com- 
mission, until such times as the Municipalities may desire to purchase and operate 
them under Local Commissions. The Corporations of Whitby, Madoc and Stirling 
are exceptions, and these Municipalities already control their own distributing 
systems, obtaining their supply of power through the agency of the Commission. 

The complete list of Municipalities served is as below : — Belleville, Bowman- 
ville, Brighton, Cedardale, Cobourg, Colborne, Deseronto, Lindsay, Madoc, Mill- 
brook, Napanee, Newcastle, Newburgh, Oshawa, Orono, Peterborough, Port Hope, 
Stirling, Trenton, Tweed, Whitby. 

Rates 

The rates used by the former owners of the property have been continued in 
force pending the compilation of sufficient operating data to permit the deter- 
mination of the cost of power delivered at the various Municipalities. It is expected 
that this will be completed early enough to permit of placing in effect a new 
schedule of rates in the Commission's standard form at the beginning of the year 
1917. All flat rates will be extinguished as quickly as possible, and power contracts 
as they mature will be altered to conform to the Commission's^ standard form of 
contract. 



182 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

Future Developments 

The demand for power throughout the district is increasing very rapidly, and 
in order to meet this demand, additional transmission lines will be constructed 
next year, and additional generating units will be installed at Healey Falls. It is 
also expected that new generating stations will be built at a number of the dams 
on the Trent river. 

Gas and Water Plants 

In addition to the electric properties, the Gas Plants at Oshawa, Peterborough, 
Cobourg and Napanee, and the Waterworks Systems at Cobourg and -Trenton are 
operated by the Commission at present, although it is expected that' the Muni- 
cipalities will desire to purchase these properties and operate them as municipal 
enterprises. Improvements have been made to most of these plants to cope with 
increased demand and to secure higher operating efficiency. 

Peterborough Radial Railway 

This property is at present operated by the Commission, but as the City of 
Peterborough have signified that they would prefer to operate it, it is likely that 
the road will be purchased by the city during the coming year. 

Northumberland Pulp Mfll 

This mill is situated at Campbellford, and manufactures ground wood pulp. 
Supplies of raw material are obtained in the northern townships of the Counties 
of Hastings and HaUburton, and negotiations have been carried on with a view 
to the purchase of timber limits, which would assure a supply of pulpwood for 
many years, in addition to a large number of cedar poles. As the operation of 
this mill is outside the scope of the usual activities of the Commission, it is prob- 
able that negotiations now under way will result in the sale of the mill. 

* 
Cobourg 

For some years the waterworks intake pipe had been of insufficient capacity, 
and in a precarious condition from exposure to ice pressure and storms, and con- 
tracts were let in July to John E. Eussell for the installation, and to The Thor 
Iron Works for the material, of a steel intake pipe 25i/ 2 -inch diameter and 900 
feet long, to be laid in a trench excavated in the rock bottom of Lake Ontario; 
together with a large suction well housed in an annex to the present pump house. 
This work has been completed with steel intake box, screens, new suction main 
and reservoir connections, at a cost of about $36,000. 

At the same time the four motor-driven turbine pumps have had all the in- 
terior parts renewed, including impellers of larger diameter, to meet tihe demand 
for increased pressure. 

Estimates have been prepared for the installation of gasoline-driven turbine 
pumps to replace the present steam standby plant, and for a sewerage disposal 
system to serve the pumping station and the engineer's residence. 

At the gas works the old bench of 4 S has been replaced by a modern half 
depth bench of 4 S complete with hydraulic main and tar regulator. This bench 
meets the demand for gas except during the summer season, when the bench of 
d S is in use. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 183 

Peterboro 

Increased service given by The Peterborough Radial Railway has rendered 
necessary additional pit accommodation in the car barns, and a new pit to take* 
three cars, with pockets for the convenient removal of wheels and axles, lias been 
built. 

The track within the paved area on the Jackson Park line has been fitted 
with continuous rail joints, with the" result that car maintenance has decreased 
and the operation of this section of the railway has been considerably improved. 

At the gas works, a small annex has been built at the rear of the boiler house, 
and a new oxide room and general storehouse is being built adjacent to the present 
workshop. 

A new generator lias been installed as a spare in order to enable the present 
generator to be properly repaired from time to time, and consideration lias been 
given to the completion of a second carbureted water-gas unit with modern con- 
densing and scrubbing equipment, also to the completion of the purifier plant, 
half of which was installed in 1013. 

Valuations of the physical assets of the Radial Railway and the Gas Works 
commenced by the Electric Power Company have been completed. 

Oshawa 

The rapid increase in demand for gas within the last few years has resulted 
in serious deficiency of holder" capacity. The present holder was designed for the 
addition of a flying lift, and is of English manufacture. Owing to British 
Government restrictions, it has not been possible to obtain a quotation from the 
makers on the completion of this holder. The installation of a complete coal- 
gas plant has been under consideration, and additional land has been purchased 
adjoining the gas works property to accommodate such a plant, which would be 
of capacity sufficient to meet all demands for gas, except peak loads in summer, 
and these would be taken by the present water-gas units. 

Northumberland Pulp Company 

Owing to certain changes in the wiring of one of the grinder motors, and the 
installation of an additional wet machine, to meet the heavy demand for pulp, 
the three hydraulic presses are now deficient in capacity and a fourth press is 
being built by the Boomer Boschert Company, of Montreal, to give 300 tons with 
the hydraulic pressure now in use in the mill, and an ultimate pressure of 600 
tons with a capacity of 15 tons per day and reduction to 60 per cent, air dry. 

In connection with these presses a triplex pump of comparatively low 
pressure is being added, which will accelerate the speed of the presses during the 
major part of the stroke, leaving the final heavy pressure to the present hydraulic 
pumps. 

Nipissing 

Estimates and drawings have been made for a new building adjacent to the; 
old gas house at North Bay, for storage and garage purposes, but it was decided 
that the work should not be proceeded with this year. 

A sewage disposal plant was laid out, and is being built in connection with 
the power house at Nipissing. and in accordance with the requirements of the 
Public Health authorities. 



184 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

Arrangements have been made and orders placed for the remodelling of the 
gate mechanism of one hydraulic turbine, the existing devices being insufficiently 
rigid to allow of proper control of the unit by the governor. The other uni-t in 
this station was treated some years ago in a similar manner with marked success. 



MUNICIPAL ELECTRICAL INSPECTION 

During the past year great activity has characterized the work of the depart- 
ment through the Province. The introduction of new legislation has placed the 
control of electrical installations in the hands of the Commission in a much more 
effective manner than existed before the Act of 1916. 

At the present time there is some confusion between the Power Commission 
Act, the Cinematograph Act and the Mining Act, which should be adjusted. Ex- 
perience during the past year has also disclosed the necessity for the introduction 
of some further amendments to the present regulations, but the present Act, 
together with the rules and regulations, has been very effective and tended to 
improve conditions greatly. 

The introduction of compulsory permits has been very effective, and through 
its introduction the irresponsible wiremen, amateurs, and unskilled persons are 
now obliged to notify the department before they undertake to do any electric 
wiring for light or power, so that under a rigid enforcement of this clause 
promiscuous work will be reduced to a minimum. In order to enforce this law it 
has been necessary to subpoena a number of offenders to court, and in all cases the 
magistrates have at once seen the necessity and wisdom of the law, and fines have 
been imposed as required, by the Act. This is creating a very marked respect for 
the Act, and is very highly commended by the better and responsible wiring firms 
throughout the Province. 

In many large factories and other buildings where a local electrician or 
engineer has been in the habit of doing the wiring, making alterations and repairs, 
much very defective wiring and the mutilation of what was once good wiring was 
a common practice, and a method of controlling this has been formulated by the 
adoption of a system of monthly inspection at a nominal annual inspection fee. 
Under this system any concerns thus employing their own electrician are at liberty 
to proceed with such alterations or repairs to their wiring without the formality 
of obtaining a permit for each and every job. Upon payment of a small annual 
fee of from $10 to $100, according to the extent and proportion of the place to 
be thus inspected, the electrical inspector makes a monthly visit to each factory 
or building, going over all work done during that month, and reporting any 
defects to the owner, who is obliged under the Act to see that the defective work 
is corrected. Owners will then, in their own interest, see that their electricians, or 
others entrusted with this work, are competent. The introduction of this method 
is only being commenced now, and promises to develop to very large and profit- 
able proportions. 

During the past year we have been able to place trained inspectors in charge 
of all districts in the Province, rather than depend upon the services of local 
superintendents of supply companies, as was done in some districts. By a judicious 
distribution of inspection offices throughout the Province, there is hardly, with 
the exception of one small section in the extreme north of New Ontario, a muni- 
cipality or community without electrical inspection. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 185 

Under a re-arrangement of the inspection districts we have in some places 
been able to relieve two or more inspectors, and place the districts they once con- 
trolled under other inspectors. This has been accomplished by consolidating the 
several small districts into one, and with the service of a small runabout the 
inspector is able to handle all the work to a much better advantage. 

During the year there has been recorded 100,787 actual inspections made 
throughout the Province. This figure represents actual visits of an inspector to an 
electrical installation, and does not include a vast number of inspections on old 
work, which are made during the inspectors' rounds, of which no record is kept. 

There is a marked increase in building activity, and a consequent increase in 
the work, and the prospects are that, with the introduction of the monthly factory 
inspection, the coining year will be an extremely busy one. 

The/ ncAv edition of Rules and Regulations has been published and largely 
distributed. This edition contains amendments to take care of new conditions 
which are ever presenting themselves in the way of evolutions and improvements 
in electrical construction work, and also contains under the same cover a copy of 
the Act. 

We have enjoyed the good will and hearty co-operation of the best electrical 
firms in the Province, as well as that of the Fire Marshal, who has been active 
in probing the cause of alleged electric fires, and the Electrical Inspection De- 
partment has rendered him all the assistance possible. 

All district inspectors report daily to the Chief Electrical Inspector at 
Toronto, who reports to the Chief Engineer. 

A supervising inspector is constantly employed on the road visiting the various 
districts and checking up the work of the district inspectors, and generally assist- 
ing the Chief Inspector in the administration and general supervision of the 
department. 

A number of new municipalities have been added to the large list contained 
in last year's report, and the wiring in many municipalities has been carefully gone 
over, and recommendations made by our inspectors towards eliminating dangerous 
wiring, with good effect. While a great deal has been accomplished in this respect, 
much more could be done if it were not for the scarcity of skilled labour. We have 
found owners of buildings, as a general rule, ready to heed the warnings of 
inspectors, and to proceed with such changes and overhauling as required by our 
inspectors, just so soon as labour and material could be found. 



MUNICIPAL PURCHASES AND SALES 

The municipal electrical enterprises in Ontario require in the aggregate large 
quantities of poles, line wire, cross arms, insulators, transformers, house service 
meters and of everything needed for the construction and maintenance of their 
various projects. 

This demand can, in a measure, be filled by individual municipal purchase, 
but this is not always satisfactory. Owing to the wide range in the variety of 
materials and in the requirements, the municipal officials may lack the equipment 
necessary to properly safeguard their interests, and may not know exactly what 
should bg used and where it can be obtained to the best advantage. The require- 
ments of an individual town are comparatively limited. It cannot always afford 
large quantities and accordingly has to pay higher prices. At times rush orders 



186 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

may be placed for urgently needed material, which through lack of provision, 
may not be in stock. For these and other reasons individual effort of this kind 
often means through lack of co-operation the more or less indiscriminate purchase 
of smaller quantities at higher prices, and the absence of an effective means of 
control which would tend to standardize quality and efficiency. 

If the large requirements of the municipalities as a whole were combined 
and centralized, there would be created a purchasing agency which could control the 
various commercial conditions so that each municipality could obtain its com- 
paratively smaller requirements under the favorable conditions attending com- 
petitive wholesale purchase. 

To give practical effect to this centralized purchasing idea the Commission 
maintains a Purchasing Department whose services are offered to any municipality 
or Provincial institution in Ontario, whether connected with the Hydro system 
or not. 

During the past year we have been buying for one hundred and fifty-three 
municipalities. Their total requirements, of over $700,000, have enabled us to 
•obtain for them at prices lower than those previously available all of the many 
items required in the extension of their various projects. On transformers, 
lamps, watt-hour meters and rubber covered wire we have been able to effect 
savings of from five to fifty per cent, over the prices previously paid. These are 
only a few of the economies effected, but will serve to show what can be done 
by co-operation. 

A feature of this centralized service to which attention should be directed 
is the possibility of intelligent discrimination. Low cost is important, but it 
should not be the only consideration. It is necessary to know that the article 
purchased represents good value for the money. We have on our staff men who 
are experts on the many materials and processes which enter into the make-up 
of the various items used. In addition, we have complete equipment for standard- 
izing and testing. Full use of these resources is made by our Purchasing Depart- 
ment, so that it is in a position to know that the materials recommended represent 
the best values obtainable. We call attention to this as we have appreciated that 
such complete facilities are seldom available to the individual towns, and we want 
to make it perfectly clear that this service has been organized for their benefit 
and is available for the asking. i 

The reduction in Hydro rates has greatly enlarged the possibilities of electric 
service in the household and on the farm, and the sales of iron*, air heaters, 
motors, and all of the many other utilities, have been greatly increased. 

To assist the municipal officials in the promotion of this revenue producing 
business the Sales Department made a careful investigation of the merchandising 
conditions, and as a guide in formulating campaigns complete data was secured 
of the methods adopted by the leading electrical companies. This information 
has been condensed and is available for municipal use. A number of the muni- 
cipalities have availed themselves of this service and have found that the broad 
gauged, progressive policies outlined have enabled them to show a very substantial 
increase in their sales of utilities. 

In building up this business they have been further assisted by definite 
advertising campaigns, from which gratifying results have already been derived. 

The services of the Sales and Advertising Department are freely offered to 
any of the municipalities in Ontario, and information in connection with this 
subject will be gladly given upon request.

ORNAMENTAL STREET LIGHTING 

REVIEW 

The installations of "White Way" systems made in many Hydro munici- 
palities during the past few years have been received with approbation by the 
public in general. 

The success of such installations has encouraged engineers engaged in their 
design and construction to make further investigations, resulting in the pro- 
duction of lighting units of improved appearance, and more effective in the 
utilization of light. Economy in first cost and in maintenance has also resulted 
and equipment has been devised which will render the continuous operation of 
street lighting circuits more secure, and provide additional safe guards against 
accidents to emplo} r ees. 

As might be expected, the "White Way" system has attracted more attention 
than what is usually designated as the "ordinary" street lighting system, which is 
generally installed in residential districts. However, the equipment for the 
"ordinary" lighting units has been the subject of much thought, and the improve- 
ments which have been made are noteworthy. Improvements in this system of 
lighting are the more important as by far the greater area of streets illuminated 
comes within this class. 

The gas-filled incandescent lamp has become firmly established, and is now 
being installed in all new "series" systems to the total exclusion of the arc lamp, 
as well as the evacuated incandescent lamp. The Commission's engineers have 
made special investigations concerning gas-filled lamps, which will be supplied in 
the near future to the Commission's specifications, resulting in a great saving to 
the municipalities. 

Heretofore the use of the "series" system of street lighting has not been 
considered feasible except in cities and larger towns, where a considerable 
number of lighting units is required. Hence, the smaller municipalities have been 
debarred from obtaining the benefits of the "series" system, which is, in many 
ways, ideal for street lighting service. Due to recent developments in the regu- 
lating apparatus, which is required for the satisfactory operation of the "series" 
system, the latter is now available for even the smallest village. 

INSTALLATIONS 

Almonte 

A complete new street lighting system is now being constructed in this 
municipality under the supervision of the Commission. The existing D.C. arc 
lamps will be taken out of service. 

Blenheim 

A "White Way" system of ornamental standards fed by underground cable 
has been installed; the lights were put into operation during the week ending 
January 8th, 1916. 

Cobden 

A street lighting system is being constructed in Cobden under the Com- 
mission's supervision. 



190 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

Cobourg 

At the request of the municipality the Commission has submitted plains and 
estimates for a new street lighting system to replace the present system of en- 
closed arc lamps. 

Ingersoll 

The Commission's engineers, on the request of the municipality, made re- 
commendations concerning the installation of a "White Way" system on Thames 
Street. This system is now being Constructed by the local authorities, and all 
the equipment has been supplied by this Commission. 

Norwich 

This municipality has been advised regarding the installation of a "White 
Way" system, and has constructed the same, the equipment being purchased 
through this Commission. * 

Sarnia 

A new system of street lighting is now under construction, planned and 
installed under the supervision of the Commission. Some 650-100 watt units 
are required for the residential streets, and 76-500 watt units in the commercial 
district. Combination railway and lighting poles of tubular steel are being 
erected and the "White Way" units will be mounted on them. The circuits will 
be carried overhead, except at the Square in front of the City Hall, and in the 
park at the Public Library. 

Petrolia 

A "White Way" system according to recommendations from the Commission 
has been constructed in Petrolia. Lights were put into operation on April 25th, 
1916. 

Ridgetown 

A "White Way" system fed by underground cable was installed in Eidge- 
town and placed in service during the last week in December, 1915. 

GENERAL 

Special equipment for Ornamental Lighting has been supplied to a number 
of municipalities; others have been provided with estimates or recommendations 
regarding existing or proposed installations; 'these municipalities (include 
Amherstburg, Chatham, DunnviH'e, Exejter, Guelph, : Huntsvil]e, Kingston, 
North Bay, St. Catharines, Stratford, and Windsor.

MUNICIPAL UNDERGROUND CONSTRUCTION 

There has been but little activity in underground construction during the 
past year, in accordance with the general policy of eliminating expenditures fol 
all works not absolutely necessary at the present time. 

Hamilton 

Cables have been installed in the Joint Underground Conduit System, and are 
now being operated by the Hamilton Hydro-Electric Department and the Great 
North Western and Canadian Pacific Railway Telegraph Companies. 

St. Thomas 

In connection with the new municipal sub-station, manholes and conduits 
have been installed to carry the distribution feeders underground from the sub- 
station to the overhead pole lines. 

Owen Sound 

A twelve-duct underground run with manholes was constructed leading 
from the new municipal sub-station to the overhead distribution system. The 
cables were placed in operation in January, 1916. 



ELECTRIC RAILWAY PROJECTS 

A number of resolutions from Municipal Councils asking for reports on addi- 
tional electric railway projects were received during the year. In some cases these 
resolutions were. from Municipalities who had already requested to be considered 
in one or more lines in their particular district. No attempt has been made to 
keep track of these duplicate applications, but to date resolutions have been 
received from 15 cities, -17 towns, 51 villages, 8 police villages, 172 townships and 
from 7 counties or other similar governing bodies. A total of 300 resolutions has, 
therefore, been received since the passing of the first railway act. In response 
to these resolutions the Commission has made preliminary surveys on 2639.46 
miles of line, and has gathered traffic statistics for approximately tbree-quarters 
of the district affected by such surveys. 

The map of south-western Ontario as found on the following page shows in 
black the routes covered by the principal surveys that have been made in that 
section of the Province, and also in green the lines upon which reports have been 
made. The projects which have been voted upon and carried by the ratepayers 
are indicated in red. Other surveys not shown on the map were made as follows : — 

1. Gravenhurst to Baysville and Hollow Lake. 

2. Kingston to Cornwall. 

3. Ottawa to Morrisburg. 

4. Various lines in Prince Edward County. 

In addition to engineering and traffic surveys considerable work was done 
during the year on preparation of standard drawings and specifications for con- 
struction and equipment of the proposed lines. This work is being carried on 
in a very careful way, as it is felt that considerable savings in cost of construction

192 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

and operating of the various lines will be possible if they are all built to conform 
to the same specifications. 

The most outsanding events of the year as related to the proposed system of 
municipally-owned electric railways were: — 

1st. The voting on the Toronto-London Line. 

2nd. The commencement of the campaign for the Port Credit-St. Catharines 
and YVelland-Bridgeburg Lines. 

3rd. The remarkable success achieved by the London-Port Stanley Railway 
during their first year of service. 

Proposed Toronto-London Line 

A report on the Toronto-London Line was given to the municipalities inter- 
ested in the Fall of 1915, and voting on the By-laws took place at the annual 
elections in January, 1916. The report covered a 137-mile line extending from 
the foot of Yonge Street, Toronto, westward along the new Harbor Board property, 
under the Exhibition grounds and parallel and south of the G.T.R. to one mile 
west of Port Credit, where the G.T.R. is crossed. From this point the line pro- 
ceeds in a westerly direction through Milton, Guelph, Kitchener, Stratford and 
St. Marys to London, where connection would be made with the London and 
Port Stanley Railway at the corner of Richmond and Bathurst Streets. The 
estimated cost of construction and equipment was placed at $13,734,155. . Further 
details of the route and distribution of the guarantee can be obtained from the 
form of agreement as contained in the Railway Act for 1916, which Act will be 
found in this report under the heading of " Legal Proceedings." 

A number of Public Meetings were held in the Municipalities voting on the 
By-law, at which representatives of the Hydro-Electric Railway Association and 
the Commission were present. Considerable opposition to the scheme developed, 
chiefly in the City of Toronto, where the Board of Trade opposed the scheme 
very strenuously both at the Public Meetings and in the daily papers. The 
opposition seemed to assist rather than retard the interest in the project, and the 
By-laws were carried by very large majorities in the 5 cities, 3 towns, 4 villages 
and 11 out of 14 townships interested. Some 5 townships that were assessed very 
small amounts for the guarantee, due to the line passing only close to or through 
a corner of the municipality, did not vote upon their By-laws. 

The agreements with the municipalities that carried their By-laws were duly 
signed and were ratified by Act of Parliament in the Spring of 1916, but this 
Act, while legalizing the agreement, expressly states that no construction can be 
undertaken during the period of the war. Provision is made, however, for the 
carrying on of location surveys and the purchase of property for the right-of-way. 

Proposed Niagara District Lines 

A report on a 60-mile line from Port Credit through Hamilton to St. 
Catharines was presented to delegates from the municipalities in that district at 
Hamilton on September 1st, 1916. The feeling of the meeting was so unani- 
mously in favour of proceeding with the Scheme that representatives of the Hydro- 
Electric Railway Association and engineers of this Commission were sent to the 
Council of the Municipalities with full details and resolutions were then passed 
asking the Commission to secure the necessary sanction of an agreement to provide 
for the construction and operation of the line and to secure such sanction in suffi- 
cient time so that voting on the proposition might take place on January 1st, 1917. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 193 

The ratepayers in the Welland-Port Colborne-Bridgeburg district have been 
desirous for a number of years of securing electric railway service through that 
district, and although the Commission was not prepared to give final decision on 
a through route to the Niagara Frontier, still they found from the traffic surveys 
that there was sufficient local business to make the construction of a local line a 
splendid proposition, irrespective of the location of the through line. A general 
report was at once presented to the Councils of the municipalities interested and 
they passed resolutions requesting the Commission to procure the sanction of the 
agreement so that voting on the proposition may take place at the annual elections 
in January, 1917. 

Two lines will, therefore, be voted upon in January next, the first 60 miles 
in length extending from Port Credit westerly through Oakville, Burlington, 
Hamilton, Grimsby and Beamsville to St. Catharines, and the second line 28 miles 
in length extending southward from Welland to Port Colborne on the east side 
of the canal, and from thence easterly through Eidgeway, Crystal Beach and Fort 
Erie to Bridgeburg. The estimated cost of the Port Credit-St. Catharines line 
is placed at $11,360,363 and the Welland-Bridgeburg line at $2,208,716. The 
construction and equipment proposed for these lines would be of a very high 
standard and would be similar to that found on the London and Port Stanley 
Railway. A large proportion of the revenue will be received from the transpor- 
tation of freight. The route through the City of Hamilton involves a high level 
bridge across the ravine at Valley Inn at the northern limit of the city, and the 
construction of a double-track line through the city, passing along -the edge of 
Dundurn Park and hence on private right-of-way through the manufacturing 
district to the easterly boundary of the city. There would only be one or two 
minor highway crossings at grade within the city limits. 

London-Port Stanley Railway 

This electric railway reconstructed and electrified under the Commissions' 
standard specifications, finished its first year of operation under municipal man- 
agement on June 30th, 1916. Previous reports of this Commission contain 
information showing the manner in which this railway was assisted in the recon- 
struction and electrification and consequently the results achieved by this line 
may be used to illustrate the service that will be given over the various lines that 
have been favorably reported upon by the Commission. The report that has just 
been issued, covering this first year of operation indicates that the line after meet- 
ing all charges, including taxes, interest, rentals, etc., and full sinking fund 
charges on the new investment, yielded a surplus of some $21,000. This is 
considered a remarkable success, as sufficient rolling stock was not available 
to carry all the business that was offered, and also the first few months of 
operation were not profitable because many of the side tracks were not electrified 
and the Michigan Central freight business was withdrawn and given to a competing 
line. 

Officials of the line were assisted at various times during the year with 
engineering advice on the location of new tracks and other similar matters. 
Designs were also worked up for a 70-foot motor car which would become a 
standard of the Commissions. These new specifications are now being used by the 
L. & P. S. railway to secure tenders on two of such cars for their own use^. These 
cars will be of the three-compartment type and will be very similar to the 60-foot 
cars now operating on this railway. The same high standards of interior finish, 
such as mahogany trim, bronzed fittings, plush seats, etc., as found on the earlier 
cars are also to be used for these new cars.

194 NINTH ANNUAL'REPORT OF THE No. 48 

During the year this railway constructed a modern car barn, and in this work 
were assisted by the Commission from time to time, and the design of this building 
and equipment will probably be used on the various lirles that 'have been reported 
upon by the Commission. Engineers were loaned the railway company for the 
purpose of assisting them in working out details of maintenance of equipment 
and instructing the employees connected with such work. 



TESTING AND RESEARCH LABORATORIES 

The activities of the laboratories have been extended in several directions 
during the past year. One of the most important extensions of the work has been 
the undertaking of comprehensive investigations of conditions on the high tension 
transmission lines; these include a theoretical study of voltage and current con- 
ditions at all stations, with a view to improvement in voltage regulation, a study 
of relay protection, of high tension insulators, of current and power supplied under 
short-circuit conditions at various points on the system, of the possibility of using 
steel for transmission line conductors and of many other subjects suggested by 
those mentioned above. These investigations are the result of the endeavors which 
are continually -being made by the Commission, as well as by all large power com- 
panies, to perfect the transmission of power at high voltages. Their importance 
will be appreciated by the layman when the object in view is stated — to make it 
possible to supply electric power to the consumer without interruption and at 
constant supply voltage. 

Reference should also be made to the label service operated by the laboratories 
in conjunction with the Electrical Inspection Department; further reference to 
this is made below. 

During the year the handling of used apparatus by the Commission has been 
taken up systematically and a suitable method of carrying on this work was adopted ; 
this is described in the November issue of the Hydro Bulletin. The inspection of 
this class of apparatus is done by the laboratories. 

The number of mechanical and other non-electrical tests has so increased that 
it was considered sufficient to occupy the attention of a specialist in this line. 
Accordingly the Structural Materials Laboratory was organized and additional 
equipment for this class of work has been placed on order. 

The following equipment has been added during the year: 

An exciter for the 60-cycle alternator, a 33,000-volt transformer for testing 
oil and other insulation, a set of laboratory standard ammeters, voltmeters antf 
wattmeters, a large number of portable and laboratory type meters, an integrating 
sphere photometer 84 inches in diameter, a 40,000-lb. Universal testing machine, a 
200,000-lb. hydraulic compression machine, besides numerous smaller pieces of 
apparatus. 

The extension of the test work has rendered the present space entirely in- 
adequate to our needs and additions are at present being made which will make 
available for the laboratories about 20,000 sq. ft. When this space has been added 
the present testing equipment will be rearranged to suit the requirements of the 
laboratories. 

High Tension Testing Laboratory 

Previous reports have indicated the general purpose and development of this 
laboratory and in harmony with the increased scope and activity of the Com- 




Cement and Sand Testing Equipment 




18" Integrating Sphere Photometer, Lamp Testing Laboratory 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 195 

mission as a whole, this department is continually widening its sphere of usefulness. 

Routine tests are made on samples of all classes of apparatus purchased by 
the Commission from the high voltage tests on the insulators for the 110,000-volt 
lines and stations to small motors and switches for the small consumer. Apparatus 
is available from which any single-phase 25-cycle voltage up to 200,000 volts or 
60-cycle voltage of 400,000 volts may be obtained and a great deal of work is done 
at 100,000 volts and higher. 

One routine test which has an important value in the operation of the system 
is the testing of three hundred and fifty samples of oil each month, sent in from the- 
high-tension stations on the system and taken from the 110,000-volt transformers 
and oil circuit breakers. In addition to the regular samples from twenty to fifty 
special samples per month are received from municipal stations. These are all 
tested for dielectric strength and records kept of the condition of this insulating 
medium are of inestimable value in forestalling failure of the apparatus due to 
faulty oil. Apparatus is under development which reduces the time and cost of 
these tests to a minimum and ensures very accurate results. Insulator testing also 
has a very important value to the system, and with the proposed extension of space 
available for the high-tension testing it is expected that high voltages and high 
frequency oscillations may be used that under previous conditions have been more 
or less unsatisfactory. 

Special tests are made on apparatus purchased under guarantee by the Com- 
mission, either for its own direct use or for the use of municipalities for which it is 
acting in an advisory capacity. During the past year complete tests have been run 
on constant-current transformers, constant-potential transformers, motors, motor- 
starters, circuit-breakers, lightning arresters, fuses, rubber gloves and various other 
protective devices and apparatus. The result has been most beneficial in bringing 
the manufacturer and consumer to terms, sometimes by proving the good points of 
the article in question, at other times by noting the weaknesses and encouraging 
and advising the manufacturer as' to the changes to be made in design or process of 
manufacture. The honest manufacturer invariably appreciates the fact that the 
laboratories exist for his benefit as well as for that of the general public and har- 
monious relations are the result. 

Used apparatus, sold by one municipality to another, as the result of 
change in service supply, is sent for inspection to this laboratory, and the tests 
given to this apparatus are such as to test its ability to operate satisfactorily under 
any reasonable condition of service. Although the arrangements of this scheme 
were made quite recently, a considerable amount of material has already been 
transferred in this way. 

The testing and approval of fittings and other apparatus has become an 
integral part of the work of this department, and activity among the manufacturers 
and dealers of this Province is evident from the amount of material inspected and 
the urgent need for its return as soon as approved. The laboratory co-operates in 
this work with the Inspection Department and operates a label service, by means 
of which approved apparatus is labelled. The utmost care is taken to approve 
no apparatus which would become hazardous when in or out of service, and sug- 
gestions are made as to the alterations necessary to meet with the approval of the 
Commission. In addition to approval tests in the laboratory periodical inspection 
is made in the factories with the object of seeing that no apparatus which does not 
comply with our requirements is placed on the market. 

The scope of this department, as outlined in previous reports, includes general 



196 NINTH .-ANN UAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

tests on mechanical strength, quality of building materials, etc. The work of both 
electrical and mechanical sections has grown to such an extent as to warrant the 
formation of two separate departments, hence the general tests on strength of 
materials are not included in the work of the High-Tension Laboratory. 

Meter and Standards Laboratory 

The increase in the amount of energy transmitted and distributed has reacted 
in several ways upon the activities of the Meter and Standards Department. The 
large volume of power handled necessitates an ever increasing degree of precision 
in its measurement; and the greater number of consumers means a greater number 
of metering units to be maintained in accuracy. These and similar conditions 
have resulted in this Department now handling approximately twice the volume 
of work of a year ago. 

A complete set of Weston long scale standard indicating instruments has been 
placed in the laboratory, and pending further extensions to the building, temporarily 
installed ; so that calibrations may be made on ammeters, voltmeters and wattmeters. 
By means of standard cells and standard resistances it is possible at any time to 
compare the accuracy of these laboratory instruments with the standards at Ottawa 
and at Washington. With the improved standardization equipment frequent checks 
are possible on the large number of portable meters used by the Laboratory and by 
the Operating Department. Meters are also being sent in by the municipalities and 
by electrical manufacturers in the Province for calibration. 

The work of investigating various types of new apparatus as to suitability for 
installation upon the Commission's circuits has been energetically followed out. 
Complete comparative tests have been made on several improved types of watthour 
meters which have recently appeared on the market; and their high standing, 
according to the specifications indicates that the art of meter manufacture has 
advanced to a point where a revision of many of the ratings in the meter specifica- 
tions is desirable, to give a useful value to the results. This revision is now under 
consideration. The investigation of demand indicators and other special types of 
metering apparatus has given much valuable information regarding the approach 
of the readings of various types to the true value of maximum demand, under loads 
of widely differing peak characteristics. 

With a view to determining the most suitable indicating instruments for the 
switchboards, as the power systems are extended, a detailed comparative test w r as 
made on the meters of a number of manufacturers. These were submitted to 
practically every condition, normal or abnormal, under which such instruments 
might be expected to operate, and careful records made of their performance. The 
results so obtained contain much valuable information to guide in the selection of 
switchboard meters. 

The problem of better protection of the great network of. transmission lines 
against interruptions due to short circuits, grounds and other accidental conditions 
is being taken up by the Laboratory, and it has fallen to the lot of the Meter De- 
partment to make examinations and tests of a number of types of protective relays 
supplied for such work. Though these tests are not complete some very inter- 
esting results have been collected to show the comparative operation, as regards 
selective and other features under widely diverse conditions of load, temperature 
and location. 

Considerable design work has been undertaken. This includes relays for 
motor protection, mechanical refinements to demand and other special meters, as

well as such auxiliary apparatus as may be required by the Laboratory for its own 
use. The construction of special meters, and the alteration of others to suit special 
conditions has occupied much time, the principal work of this class being the con- 
version of a number of polyphase wattmeters into " wattless component " meters. 
This consists in a simple modification of the resistances and connections so that by 
throwing a switch the converted meter may be made to read the reactive volt- 
amperes of a polyphase circuit. With a graphic " wattless " meter installed beside 
a wattmeter it is a simple matter to determine at any time the true power factor 
of the load, no matter how badly unbalanced the currents may be ; while by throw- 
ing over the switch the instrument reads the power component and may be made to 
duplicate or replace the wattmeter in the circuit. 

A large amount of repair work has been done in the meter shop for the muni- 
cipalities. This has included watthour meters, defective, disputed or damaged 
through overloads or other causes, demand indicators, graphic and indicating 
instruments. In addition to this a systematic overhauling and adjusting of the 
meggers used by the Operating Department is carried on. By the nature of their 
work on insulator testing these meggers receive very heavy service and without 
periodic attention they would soon lose their usefulness. 

The work which has shown the greatest increase is that of handling used 
apparatus. Old watthour meters in batches of from half a dozen to several 
hundred have poured in from all points. These are sorted out, the manifestly 
obsolete ones set aside and the others put through a schedule of cleaning, adjustment 
and recalibration. They are then either returned to the original owners or taken 
into stock to supply the great demand for used meters. Among those com- 
ing are many, some fifteen or more years of age, which because of obsolescense 
or inherently bad characteristics are immediately relegated to the scrap heap, where 
they are later joined by others which fail to show the required accuracy on the 
test board. For these an allowance is made to the owner for the value of the metal 
contained. About a thousand meters have in this way passed through the 
Laboratory. 

The variety of meters carried in the storehouse stock demands supervision so 
that meters sent out on order will be suited to the requirements of the service. 
The Meter Department in doing this is often able to adapt to a special need meters 
which might otherwise lie unused on the shelves. Meters for Government inspec- 
tion are taken into the test room where a representative of the Inland Revenue 
Department inspects them and applies the seal of the Department. 

With a view to establishing a suitable basis of billing certain classes of power 
and lighting loads, several extended tests have been made on services of various 
classes. These include determination of demand by means of a graphic meter and 
a general consideration of all existing conditions. The loads so investigated in- 
clude beside a variety of lighting services, printing offices, elevators, incline rail- 
ways, metal works, woollen mills, electric signs and amusement parks. 

A wide use has been made of the oscillograph, and by its use some very 
knotty problems made possible of solution. Early in the year the complete outfit 
was set up in the power bouse at Eugenia Falls and a complete examination made, 
with particular attention to special transformer connections. Photographic records 
were obtained of practically every electrical quantity in the plant; and an analysis 
of the oscillograms soon led to a decision as to connections best suited to the case 
in hand. Oscillographic records have also been obtained of currents flowing 
through the resistances used between ground and the neutral of the star con- 
nected 110,000-voIt transmission lines. 



198 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

A problem confronting the engineers of to-day is to design auxiliary apparatus 
to effectually prevent " flashing over" of high voltage rotary converters; and with 
this in view a number of oscillograms were obtained from the machines supplying 
the London and Port Stanley Eailway. Records were obtained of operation under 
widely varying conditions of load and data obtained from these, which should result 
in great strides toward the elimination of flashovers and other troublesome features 
of machines of this type. 

In addition to the special work described above the Meter Laboratory has been 
many times called into service to perform special tests for the Inspection Depart- 
ment, and to pass approval on relays and other apparatus manufactured either in 
the Commission's shops or elsewhere for use on the numerous lines and services 
throughout the Province. 

Lamp Testing Laboratory 

During the year just closed the lamp laboratory has continued the routine 
testing of lamps for stock. Such tests include tests for vacuum, rating and life 
tests, as well as inspection for mechanical defects. The volume of routine testing 
has been fully up to that of previous years, while the number of tests for parties 
outside the Commission has been considerably increased. These include complete 
tests on new types of lamps and life tests on manufacturers' samples. 

A notable departure in our method of testing gas-filled lamps and vacuum 
lamps with concentrated filaments has been necessary. Candle power values for 
lamps of these types are no longer given in terms of horizontal candle power; the 
mean spherical candle power is the unit which is now used by the Commission to 
express the light intensity of such lamps, and the light output of the lamps is ex- 
pressed in terms of lumens. This change is necessary because of certain inherent 
features of gas-filled lamps and because of different spherical reduction factors of 
concentrated filament vacuum lamps. These measurements are all made in an 
integrating sphere photometer. An 18-inch sphere was fitted up in the lamp 
laboratory and has been in use for the testing of the smaller sizes. An 84-inch 
sphere is being constructed of reinforced concrete for the testing of the largest 
sizes. This sphere is nearing completion. Specifications have been issued for the 
purchase of gas-filled lamps, embodying the changes in rating made necessary by 
the new methods of testing. This new method of test is in keeping with similar 
changes taking place in all lamp testing laboratories in America. All gas-filled 
lamps are now rated by most laboratories according to their lumens output or to 
their mean spherical candle power, the efficiency being expressed as mean spherical 
candle power per watt or as lumens per watt. 

A new size of series lamp has been standardized by the Commission to con- 
sume 100 watts regardless of changes of efficiency that may occur due to improved 
methods of manufacture. The new 50 watt vacuum lamp recently placed on the 
market is being tested. Lamp frosting methods are being investigated and the 
laboratory is now in a position to frost all such lamps as may be required for the 
Commission's business. 

A large number of tests have been made for various municipal managers. The 
Commission's policy of buying lamps in the open market for testing has been 
followed, thereby enabling us to keep in close touch with the output of many 
factories. 

The work of this laboratory has been of value in detecting defective shipments 
of lamps, several cases of which have occurred within the past year.

Illumination Laboratory 

As the science of illumination advances new types of apparatus are produced 
and the Commission, through the illumination laboratory, is enabled to obtain 
first-hand data on new appliances as they appear. Several new types of street 
lighting fixtures were investigated during the past year as well as the modified 
application of older types. One of the problems arising out of the use of gas-filled 
lamps for street lighting is glare. The effect of bowl frosted lamps on the re- 
duction of glare and their effects on the distribution of illumination when used 
in common fixtures were fully investigated. A very extended investigation of 
standard street lighting fixtures of the latest types was made. Representative 
samples of the product of several manufacturers were sent to the laboratory and 
were subjected to the most rigid tests to determine their optical, mechanical and 
operating characteristics. These tests included light distribution and efficiency, 
flashover tests on the insulators, puncture tests on film cutouts, accessibility of 
parts, general design and appearance and the effects of the various features on opera- 
tion. For the first time in the history of the Commission diffusing globes were 
purchased on specification. A number of samples of various makes were tested and 
the make to be purchased was decided upon. On completion of the order the 
globes were tested to insure compliance with the specifications. The effect of 
different positions of the light-centre of lamps relative to the reflectors was studied 
with standard fixtures. 

Illumination surveys were made of new installations of street lighting. 

A number of fixtures and illumination tests were made for outside parties. 

On the 84-inch integrating sphere being constructed in the laboratory pro- 
vision is made for making efficiency tests on lighting units of all kinds. This 
feature is of particular value in making acceptance tests on globes and reflectors. 

This department planned the lighting installations of the various departments 
of the storehouse extension. 



Structural Materials Laboratory 

During the past year it became advisable to further subdivide the work of the 
laboratory and create a new department to take care of the testing of structural 
materials. This work had formerly been performed by the High-Tension and 
General Testing Laboratory, but since it was not related to the regular work of this 
department, being largely on a non-electrical nature, and as in the immediate future 
the demands of the Commission for this class of testing were expected to be con- 
siderable, it was decided that specialization in this field was warranted and a new 
department, called the Structural Materials Laboratory, was organized. 

This new department is to take care of all tests and questions relating to the 
purely physical properties of the various materials of engineering, such as cement, 
aggregates and concrete, steel, iron and other metals, woods, oils, paints, etc., also 
all mechanical tests of clamps, wire, cable and various transmission line materials, 
tests of galvanizing and other rust-proofing, tests of water-proofing, heat insulating 
materials, wood preservatives and allied work. To this end the necessary equip- 
ment is being installed or will be installed in the near future. 

Formerly the laboratory was equipped for the physical testing of cement and 
partially for the testing of sand and gravel. Since the creation of the new depart- 
ment additional apparatus is being intalled and the laboratory will shortly have a 
very full and complete equipment for both the above classes of tests. With the 



200 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

additional apparatus soon to be installed the Commission will have one of the most 
completely equipped laboratories in this field in the Province, prepared to under- 
take all classes of physical testing and investigations on cement, concrete and con- 
crete materials. 

Since its inception this department has been mainly concerned with the studies 
of equipment and methods of testing for the work previously outlined. Besides 
this a certain amount of testing has been undertaken in connection with the present 
storehouse extension, the purchase of the Commission's transmission line hardware 
and other routine test work. 

A preliminary report has been prepared covering the methods of testing, equip- 
ment and operation of a field laboratory to handle the necessary testing in con- 
nection with the large amount of concrete work involved in the New Niagara Power 
Development. The proposed field laboratory will be operated in connection with 
the permanent laboratory under the direction of this department and will involve 
the testing and inspection of the cement, sand, concrete, steel and other materials 
for this large undertaking. Preliminary to this work it is proposed to experiment 
extensively with a view of evolving the most suitable and economical methods of 
testing possible with the attainment of the object in view, also to make a complete 
study of the available concrete materials, their possibilities, limitations and 
drawbacks. 

Photographic Laboratory 

The equipment of this department and the scope of its work have been des- 
cribed in a previous report. 

The work handled by the Department has so increased during the past year 
that an increase of staff has been necessary. During the year about 400 orders 
passed through the laboratory, adding over 500 new negatives to the files and over 
20,000 prints of various sizes were made for the different departments of the Com- 
mission. A considerable amount of field work was done by the official photographer 
necessitating several trips to various points on the system. These trips covered 
such subjects as electric railway development, rural distribution of power, surveys 
for power sites, etc.

GENERAL ENGINEERING

Gasoline Driven Centrifugal Pumps for Standby Purposes 

During 1914 the question of providing pumping equipment to act as a stand- 
by to electric pumps in case of fire, as required by the Fire Underwriters, was 
taken up, and the Commission agreed to act as engineers for this work. 

High speed gasoline engines for direct coupling to centrifugal pumps having 
been (at that time) recently tried in several places, their merits were investigated 
and it was decided that if a suitable reliable engine of this type could be found 
it would form an almost ideal standby, because of the small space occupied, com- 
paratively light weight, low first cost, ease and readiness with which it could 
be started up, and the small amount of labour required. 

After having settled on the capacity and head which the required pump should 
give, the Commission communicated with many manufacturers of high speed 
gasoline engines, or their representatives, in Great Britain and various European 
countries, as well as in Canada and the United States, and later issued speci- 
fications covering a Complete pumping unit comprising a centrifugal pump 
mounted on a common bed-plate with, and direct connected to, a gasoline engine, 
some latitude being given with regard to pump capacity, head and speed. 

Most of the firms, both in Europe and on this continent, which were asked 
to tender, expressed their inability to provide a suitable engine, owing either to 
the high speed asked for (1,200-1,500 r.p.m.) or horse power required (130-150 
h.p.) or both. 

The tender of the Storey Pump and Equipment Company, was finally re- 
commended to the Waterworks' Commission of Stratford. This tender was for 
a bronze fitted, 3 stage, 8-inch horizontal centrifugal pump with horizontalljy- 
split casing, direct coupled to a 6 cylinder gasoline engine made by the Van 
Blerck Motor Company, of Munroe, Mich. The pump at a speed of 1,500 r.p.m. 
was guaranteed to be capable of delivering 1,000 Imp. g.p.m. of fresh water 
against a total head of 292 feet. The engine was guaranteed to develop 136 h.p. 
at a speed of 1,500 r.p.m., and to be capable of running continuously for not less 
than 10 hours at that speed, and at a speed of 1,700 r.p.m. for 2 hours continuously. 

A governor was to be provided which would hold the speed steady to within 
plus or minus 3 per cent, between no load and full load, and which would prevent 
"hunting." 

The consumption of gasoline was guaranteed not to exceed 0.66 Imp. pint per 
brake horse-power hour. 

The Stratford Waterworks' Commissioners decided to purchase two of these 
pumps, and an order was placed for this number. 

When the gasoline engines were ready at the maker's works, one of the Com- 
mission's engineers went over to witness the tests, which proved quite satisfactory, 
the guarantees being more than fulfilled. 

The pumps also underwent rigid tests at the maker's works, and finally the 
completed units were tested. 

Both pumping sets were then shipped to Stratford and erected. During this 
stage of the work air-starters were fitted on to the engines, operated by compressed 

16 H. 



202 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

air. These starters comprise a small air compressor driven by the engine, an air 
tank and a selector valve. 

The compressor fdls the tank with air to a pressure of about 250 lbs. per 
square inch, and on starting the engine this compressed air is admitted in proper 
sequence to the cylinders, along with gasoline, by means of the selector valve; the 
engine is then started by the combined effect of the compressed air, and the com- 
bustion of the gasoline in the usual manner. 

In connection with the provision of gasoline engines, the matter was taken 
up with the Canadian Fire Underwriters Association, and their views obtained 
as to the precautions required in view of the risk of fire ; plans were later prepared 
and submitted to them; these received their approval, except in one or two minor 
features which were altered to comply with their wishes. 

After erection these pumping units were submitted to further severe tests in 
Stratford, and found to fulfil the -guarantees in all respects within the allowable 
limits of variation of plus or minus 2 per cent. 

Since completion, the pumps have been utilized on several occasions in 
emergencies for giving domestic supply, and within a few months of installation 
had been found so satisfactory that the Stratford authorities entirely discarded 
their steam plant by taking it out altogether, and installed a small heating plant 
for use in winter. 

There has been received from the Secretary of the Public Utility Commission 
of Stratford the following estimated comparison of standby service for steam and 
gasoline for one year, based on actual experience with the latter for about nine 
months.

$3,007.82 



The actual saving is probably a little less than that shown, as it is under- 
stood that the steam pumps were employed in pumping for domestic purposes 
to a greater extent than is the case with the gasoline pumps. 

However, since the total cost of this plant will not much exceed $10,000, it is 
evident that it forms a good investment for' the city. 

The two pumping sets, each of 1,000 Imp. g.p.m. capacity at 292 feet total 
head, occupy rather less space than that originally taken up by 1-1,750 Imp. g.p.m. 
steam pump together with its condenser, and the space occupied by the boilers, 
firing floor, coal storage space and smoke stack is available for other uses. In- 
vestigation shows that gasoline driven units such as these take up about one-tenth 
to one-fifteenth of the^ floor space required for equivalent steam plant. The 
extreme height of these sets does not exceed 3 feet 6 inches. 

Since the pumps are required for standby purposes only, the wear and tear 
on them will be very small, and they should therefore last a long time ; ordinarily 
they are only run about one hour or so a week each to make sure that everything 
is in good working condition. 

For the same reason the fact that gasoline is very expensive compared with 
coal is of not great importance, as very little is actually used normally, and the 
high cost of operating merely during emergency does not therefore matter. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 203 

Elevated Steel Water Tank 

During 1914 the question of conserving electric power by storing water, espec- 
ially on peak load, came up for consideration and was referred to this Commission. 
The matter was gone into carefully, the final decision being that a tank of 500,000 
Imperial gallons, elevated so as to give a pressure of 80 lbs. in the pump house. 
would make suitable provision for this purpose. 

A site near the pump house was then chosen, investigation being made as to 
the suitability of the ground to carry so heavy a weight, that of the water alone 
being 2,500 tons. 

Specifications for an elevated tank of steel, with alternatives for reinforced 
concrete, were then issued and tenders called for the work, eleven being received ; 
eight of these were for steel and three for reinforced concrete structures. 

Very careful attention was given to these tenders from the point of view 
of design, const ruction and appearance, as well as from that of the extent of the 
experience which the various tenderers had had in building such large structures. 

After eliminating all other tenders for one reason or another, those of the 
Canadian Bridge and Iron Works and the Pittsburg DesMoines Steel Company, 
were the last two between whose bids a decision had to be made; the first named 
being actually awarded the contract on September 17th, 1915, for the erection 
of a 500,000 Imperial gallon steel tank, 39 feet 9 inches deep and 54 feet in 
diameter, elevated so that when full the water level would be 155 feet above the 
ground; the supports to consist of 8 legs constructed of steel, and the riser drum 
to be 6 feet in diameter. 

This tank for its size is very shallow, having the special elliptical bottom 
designed by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Works, one advantage, of course, being 
that the water pressure varies only between small limits, while another is that 
the flat bottom acts as a diaphragm and takes care of the expansion and contraction 
of the riser drum. The large diameter of the riser drum obviates the need for a 
frost casing. The weight of steel in the whole of this structure is 250 tons, making 
a total weight on the foundations, when full of water, of 2,750 tons. 

Special precautions were taken to insure that the fabrication of this structure 
should be carried out in Canada, and that Canadian labour should be employed 
to the fullest extent possible. 

Specifications were also drawn up covering the concrete foundations. Ten- 
ders were called for on this work, and a contract was finally made with a local 
Arm in Stratford for the construction of the foundations, and a valve chamber 
which was located at the foot of the tower. 

These foundations had to be very massive, in the 8 footings for the tower 
legs and the footings for the 6-foot riser drum over 300 cubic yards of concrete 
were used. 

At the foot of the tower it was necessary to build a large valve chamber to 
accommodate an electro-hydraulic valve and two ordinary gate valves. These 
three are all 16-inch valves. 

The first named is operated from the pump house by turning a switch, which 
closes an electric circuit, thus actuating a small control valve which admits the 
water to one side or the other of a .hydraulic piston, connected with the main valve, 
according to whether this valve is to be opened or closed. On receiving an alarm 
of fire the operator in the pump house can close the valve in the manner described, 
thereby shutting off the tank, when the water pressure can be immediately raised 



204 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

to that required for fire purposes. The two hand operated gate valves are located 
one on either side of the electro-hydraulic valve for use in case of emergency .or in 
the event of the last named valve needing repairs. 

Drainage, ventilation and lighting of the valve chamber were also provided 
for. 

The level of water in the tank is indicated on the side of the tank on a large 
vertical scale, marked in feet, the slider being actuated by a float in the tank. 
In the pump house the water level is read on the pressure gauge. 

The tank has a balcony with a stout iron railing all around it, and access to 
this is gained by an iron ladder, which extends from the balcony to about 7 feet 
from the ground. 

The whole structure received one shop coat and one field coat of graphite 
paint. 

The tank is roofed over and may be entered by ascending the ladder (which 
reaches from the balcony to the roof) and climbing through a man-hole. This 
ladder is arranged to revolve around the whole tank, so as to give access to every 
portion of the sides and roof for inspection and painting. 

Inside the tank at the bottom, in order to guard against the possibility of 
anyone falling down the riser drum, during construction, or at any future time, an 
iron grid is provided over the opening. 

The total cost of this work amounted to about $30,000. 

The advantages of such an elevated tank are several: — 

1. There is available at all times for domestic supply a considerable quantity 
of water at a pressure ranging from 80 to 63 lbs. per square inch. 

2. Water at this pressure can be used in case of fire for a few minutes until 
proper fire pressure is available or possibly altogether for small fires. 

3. It is possible to do all the pumping outside of peak load hours, thereby 
effecting considerable economy. 

4. The pumping conditions generally, and the pressure at services are ren- 
dered more uniform, thereby permitting the use of smaller units, as otherwise the 
available pumping capacity must be at least equal to that of the water peak. 

Niagara-on-the-Lake 

At the beginning of 1916, the Commission was approached by the authorities 
of the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, with a view to obtaining engineering advice 
in connection with their waterworks' pumping. 

This work was taken up and after careful consideration of local conditions, 
specifications were issued and tenders called for two electrically driven centri- 
fugal pumps. 

Various tenders were received for these, the order finally going to the 
Storey Pump and Equipment Company, for 2 6-inch, 2-stage, bronze-fitted, centri- 
fugal pumps, each capable of delivering 600 Imp. g.p.m. of fresh water against a 
total head of 180 feet, and each direct coupled to a Crocker Wheeler, 50 h.p.. 
three-phase, 25-cycle, 2,200-volt, 1,500 r.p.m., squirrel cage induction motor. 

The pumps when ready at the maker's works were tested in the presence of 
one of the Commission's engineers, but failed to, fulfil the guarantees regarding 
efficiency, and the Commission therefore refused to accept them. It was then 
arranged that the makers should build two new pumps of a somewhat different 
pattern. This was done very expeditiously, and the new pumps, having proved 
satisfactory under test at the maker's works, were accepted.

1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISS ION 205 

Very careful tests were also witnessed at the maker's works on the motors, 
which were found to properly meet the guarantees. 

The completed units were then erected at Niagara-on-the-Lake, and have 
been running satisfactorily ever since, i.e. about six months. 

Camp Borden 

During the negotiations for the supply of electric power to Camp Borden, the 
matter of pumping plant was taken up with the Commission by the Military 
Authorities, as such plant was required very urgently. 

The conditions having been looked into, steps were immediately taken to 
secure the necessary pumps, motors and auxiliary equipment. It was found possible 
to obtain from the Storey Pump and Equipment Company, two centrifugal 
pumps which they had in stock, and which would be suitable if driven at a speed 
of about 1,800 r.p.m. 

Two 150 h.p., 2,200-volt, three-phase, 25-cycle, 750 r.p.m. motors were also 
procured, one from the Canadian General Electric Company, and the other from 
the Canadian Westinghouse Company. 

The essentia] feature of this work was that it be carried out in the shortest 
possible time, and although it would have been preferable to use motors direct 
coupled to the pumps, it was impossible to do so, owing to the limited time avail- 
able, the pumps were therefore arranged to be belt driven. 

The necessary outboard bearings and pulleys were on this account obtained 
from the pump makers; suitable valves and pipe fittings were purchased, and the 
equipment was all shipped to Camp Borden and erected there. 

This plant was put into operation within one month of the date on which 
the Commission took the matter up. 

Palmerston 

At the request of the town authorities, specifications were issued in July for 
a vertical electrically driven centrifugal pump, capable of delivering 300 Imp. 
g.p.m. of fresh water against a total head of 150 feet. The pump was to be 
suspended about 14 feet below the motor in a steel framework. 

After consideration of the various tenders received, an order for this equip- 
ment was placed with the Canadian Fairbanks-Morse Company, by the town 
officials on the recommendations of the Commission. It has already been tested 
and found satisfactory at the maker's works, and instructions have been given 
for immediate delivery to Palmerston. The pump will be erected in a well about 
6 feet diameter and 3 5. feet deep, close to the pump house. 

Tavistock 

During August of this year, the subject of pumping was brought before the 
Commission's engineers by the Reeve, asking for prices on an electrically driven 
pump for domestic purposes. 

After 'having ascertained the local requirement^, and upon instructions 
from the town, a 4-inch x 4-inch 60 Imp. g.p.m. Luitwieler pump to discharge 
against a head of from 65 to 104 lbs. per square inch, geared to a single-phase, 
220-volt, 25-cycle motor, was purchased from the General Machinery Company; the 
motor was equipped with an automatic device, whereby the motor is started and 
stopped automatically according to whether the tank is empty or full.

Ridgetown 

At the request of the Waterworks' Commission in Ridgetown, one of the 
Commission's engineers witnessed a test carried out on two triplex 6-inch x 8- 
inch single acting pumps supplied by the Canadian Fairbanks-Morse Company, 
and designed to deliver 104 Imp. g.p.m. at a speed of 43 r.p.m. against a head of 
125 lbs. These pumps are geared and each is belt driven from a 15 h.p. 750 r.p.m. 
550 volt, three-phase, 25-cycle motor. 

The test results were only approximate owing to the character of the testing 
equipment available, but were sufficient to enable the Commission to inform the 
town authorities that the plant as a whole was quite satisfactory, and that it was 
capable of doing the work required of it. 

Kingston, Chesley, Listowel, etc. 

Estimates, reports and preliminary engineering work have also been carried 
out in connection with Waterworks' pumping problems for the following: — 

Kingston, Chesley, Listowel, Preston, Lindsay, Exeter. . 

Progress has also been made in connection with work at Goderich and Gait, 
where certain revisions of existing plant were necessary. A contract for a motor 
for Gait has been arranged, and this has been installed. At Goderich a contract 
for a new pump has been let, which it is expected will be running early in 1917. 



INSPECTION OF MATERIALS 

A good deal of inspection work has been carried out during the year. 

Insulators for voltages of from 4,000 to 110,000 volts, and for telephone 
work, numbering nearly 100,000 have been inspected. 

Two carloads each of insulator pins and hardware, as well as various sizes 
of copper, steel and aluminum wire and cable exceeding a total weight of 320 
tons, were also inspected within the period. 



NITROGEN FIXATION 

A considerable amount of investigation has been made during the year in 
regard to the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen, more especially by electrical 
processes, with a view to ascertaining the possibilities of developing a useful "off- 
peak" load. 

Nitrogen is required in enormous quantities, in particular, for two purposes, 
viz : — as a fertilizing agent for crops and plant life generally, and also for the 
manufacture of explosives. 

The largest natural source of nitrogen in a useful form is the great nitrate 
beds of Chili, and as an indication of the extent to which the demand through- 
out the world has grown, it is of interest to note that, while in the year 1830 
about 1,000 tons of nitrate were exported from Chili, the quantity exported in 
1912 was in the neighbourhood of £% million tons. 

There are some other sources of nitrogen naturally available in the world, 
but the total visible supplies are comparatively limited, and scientists have for 
several years been anxious to find some source whence the element nitrogen could 
be made commercially available. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 207 

Electrical methods of obtaining this element in a useful chemically-com- 
bined form, while not the only ones which have been developed, have been broughi 
to a point where they are of great commercial importance, as the cost of thus 
producing nitrogen compounds is competitive with the cost of Chilean nitrate, 
this latter, up to the present, controlling the market prices. 

Plants for the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen, on a large sca^ by electric 
methods, are in operation, under construction, or projected, in Norway, Switzer- 
land, Spain, Germany, Italy, India, the United States, Canada, Japan, and possibly 
some other countries. 

In all the countries named water power is, or will be, the source of energy 
for this rapidly growing industry, with the exception of Germany, where poor 
grade coal is to be used in generating electric power. It is probable that there 
are now some half million or more horse-jpower in use throughout the world for 
obtaining nitrate from the air electrically, the bulk of this being in Norway, 
which is favourably situated in respect both of cheap water power and available 
markets. 

The electric methods which have been devised so far for obtaining nitrogen 
may be classified under two main headings, viz : — the electric arc process and the 
cyanamide process. 

The former, comparatively, takes a good deal of energy, and since the cost 
of water power in Canada is relatively high, it is hardly probable that any of the 
arc processes would be a commercial success in this country, unless the production 
per unit quantity of combined nitrogen per kilowatt hour can be appreciably 
increased over and above what has hitherto been realized. 

The cyanamide process, which is that in use at Niagara Falls, Ontario, has 
proved financially practicable there, and probably can be made so in other parts 
of Canada; since the raw materials are the air we breathe, coke, and lime, there 
are doubtless a number of points in Ontario where the obtaining of these essentials 
in sufficient quantity would be comparatively easy. 

The chief points to be considered in connection with the commercial pro- 
duction of nitrogen compounds are — 

1. The cost of electric power at the point where it is to be used. 

2. The cost of transportation for the raw materials. 

3. The size and availability of the markets. 

The Canadian market for these compounds in normal times, at least, will be 
practically limited to the demand for fertilizer products, at present this is of 
limited dimensions, but is likely to grow at an increasingly rapid rate. 

A good deal of activity has been evident in the United States in recent months 

in connection with nitrogen fixation. During the summer a number of meetings 

' were held in Washington, D.C., in connection with nitrogen fixation and water 

power development. Some of these meetings were attended by a representative 

of the Commission. A great many records were examined at the same time. 

Owing to the war, and the great shortage of power now being experienced, 
it is not possible to do more than keep in touch with the trend of events regarding 
this subject. 



208 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

ELECTRIC FURNACES 

• During the year the Commission has been investigating modern electric 
furnace practice, and the possibilities of this load in Ontario. The results of 
investigation so far show that where power is plentiful and reasonable in price 
the electric steel furnace is entirely practical. 

The increasing number of these furnaces in the Province confirms this belief, 
and it is anticipated that the electric furnace will not only be applied to the pro- 
duction of fine steels, but that it will even compete with the open hearth furnace. 

There is also every indication that electric smelting for iron, copper and 
other ores will be an important factor in the mining districts of the Province. 

* The high prices ruling for coke and coal and for steel products during this 
year, makes the electric furnace very attractive, and there is every indication that 
electric steel production in this Province will grow rapidly during the next year 
or two. 

The electrical production of such products as calcium carbide, carborundum 
and other substances requiring high heat, is growing, and in this Province such 
production will undoubtedly take an increasing share of the surplus water powers. 



RULES AND REGULATIONS 

The drafting of rules and regulations governing outside overhead work has 
been in hand during the year, considerable progress having been made. These are 
now at a stage where they are being considered in detail by the Commission's 
engineers in conference, and it is intended later to submit a revised draft to 
electrical engineers outside the Commission's staff, for criticism and such further 
revision as may appear to be necessary.

OPERATION OF THE SYSTEMS 

NIAGARA SYSTEM 

The operation of the Niagara System for the year 1916, was attended with 
gratifying success. In no other year, and especially since the war commenced, have 
the lines and apparatus of this system been called upon for such extraordinary duty. 
This condition was occasioned by the rapid recovery of industry together with the 
enormous development of the manufacture of war munitions in Canada. 

During the months of November to April, inclusive, and from July to October, 
power was purchased for transformation and transmission from two, and indirectly 
three sources, the supplying plants being linked together by the Commission's 
Transforming Station at Niagara Falls. On April 30th, the temporary contract 
with the Toronto Power Company expired, and from this date until July 26th, when 
the first generating unit from the Canadian Niagara Power Company was con- 
nected, the total load of the Niagara System was carried by the Ontario Power 
Company. On August 21st, a second unit at the Canadian Niagara Power Com- 
pany's Plant was parallelled with the first, and from this date until the end of 
October, the amount of power available from this company amounted to approxi- 
mately 25,000 horse-power. As these generating stations were operating at maxi- 
mum capacity, extreme caution was necessarily exercised in the operation of the 
system in order to preserve equilibrium at all times. Due credit is extended to the 
Ontario Power Company for the satisfactory service received during the year. 

Electrical storms during the past year were much more frequent and severe 
than in previous years. The Niagara System was subjected to these storms on 
sixty different days. On eight days these storms traversed practically the entire 
system, and were particularly severe. The balance of the storms traversed only 
portions of the system, mainly in the Niagara Peninsula, Preston, Stratford and 
Chatham Districts, and were more or less severe. No total system interruption 
occurred from lightning causes during the summer, and when it is considered that 
the Commission has in operation approximately 1,200 miles of high and low tension 
lines overstreching a strip of Ontario approximately 215 miles long and averaging 
60 miles wide, all lines being subjected to the accumulation of electrical discharges, 
which must be dissipated by passage to ground, the efficiency of the protective 
apparatus is strikingly evident. 

Work of a special nature carried out by the Line Maintenance Depart- 
ment, and required by reason of the rapid increase of load, included the erection of 
a temporary 12,000 volt double circuit pole line of No. 4/0 copper conductor 
between the power house of the Canadian Niagara Company's station and a point 
(on the present line between the Hydro and Toronto Power Company Trans- 
forming Stations) approximately 1,800 feet south of the Commission's station. 
Both circuits of this pole line are still in service pending the installation of the 
balance of the underground feeders to the Canadian Niagara Power Company's 
plant. 

The erection of a fourth No. 4/0 copper, three-phase circuit 15.5 miles long, 
on the 46,000 volt tower line between Niagara Falls and Welland was completed 
and placed in operation. 

The single or three-phase circuit of No. 2 aluminum between the High 
Tension station and the Municipal Station at Dundas was replaced with a double 
circuit of No. 4 copper. Two 13,200 volt air break switches were erected in these 



2 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

lines at the entrance to the John Bertram and Sons Foundry, and also near the 
Dundas Municipal Station for the control of the line of the village of Lynden. 
The wood pole line from the Dundas High Tension to the City of Hamilton, which 
•was replaced by a steel tower line during the summer of 1915, was taken down, and 
the material placed in stock. 

Short stretches of single circuit 26,400 volt lines were constructed to supply 
the Lake Erie and Northern Railway Company's sub-stations at Brantford and 
Simcoe, from the outgoing circuits of Brant High Tension Station. This work 
also included the erection of telephone lines and instruments, and the installation 
of an air break switch at the Company's Simcoe sub-station. 

The wood pole Low Tension Line entrances at London and St. Thomas, and 
at the Weston Municipal sub-station were remodeled to accommodate new lines 
■erected in these districts. In view of the many new customers added in the Strat- 
ford District, and the length of line necessary to serve them, it has been decided to 
raise the transmission voltage in this district from 13,200 to 26,400. To this end 
considerable re-arranging of the power and telephone lines was carried out in pre- 
paration for this change. For sectionalizing purposes two air break switches were 
<erected at Mitchell in the double circuit line between Stratford and Seaforth. The 
telephone line between Stratford and Sebringville Junction was doubled by the 
erection of a circuit of No. 9 iron wire. 

Some re-location of the 13,200 volt line feeding the Mimico Distribution 
Station from the Cooksville High Tension Station was necessary, due to the con- 
struction of the Toronto-Hamilton Highwa} . The portion of line affected extended 
from Port Credit to New Toronto. 

A twenty-five "pair" lead covered telephone cable approximately 13,500 feet 
long, was installed between the High Tension Station and the Commission's new 
office building at Toronto. The cable was laid in the Toronto Hydro-Electric 
System duct line to the corner of Queen and William Streets and from thence to 
the office building on the concrete poles. 

Few failures of any of the electrical or mechanical equipment of the High 
Tension stations occurred during the year. As the Commission, in common with 
other enterprises in Canada, was severely handicapped in obtaining delivery on 
additional apparatus required to cope with the abnormal demand for power, the 
present equipment in some of the stations was subjected to overload for short 
periods, but without any depreciating results. The difficulty, mentioned above 
was partially met by the transfer, where feasible, of transformers from one station 
to another. One of the more important changes of this nature was the transfer 
of two 750 kv-a transformers from G-uelph to the St. Thomas station. 

The Commission now employs a staff of nine highly trained meter experts 
whose regular duties consist of the periodic calibration and adjustment of the 
various types of graphic recording and indicating instruments located in the 'Com- 
mission's stations. 

These men also attend to the setting and adjustment of all relays used to 
protect the Commission's lines and equipment. 

Considerable time has been spent in perfecting refinements in connection with 
the measurement of power, which has been to a- great extent apparently considered 
unnecessary heretofore by the majority of other organizations. These refinements 
extend from the periodic comparison of the Commission's portable standard 
meters with ultimate standards to the determination of the characteristics of 
instrument transformers of various types.

The services of the meter inspectors may also he requisitioned by any of the 
Commission's customers to inspect or adjust metering and relay equipment, or to' 
conduct special measurements of any loads with regard to which the customer is 
desirous of obtaining particular information. 

A long felt want was realized in the erection of the storehouses on the High 
Tension Station ground during the summer. These buildings will accommodate 
'maintenance materials of a bulky nature. This work, together with the building 
of suitable approaches, was done under the supervision of the operators. Outside 
lights surmounting concrete poles were installed at Dundas, London and Kent 
High Tension Stations, with pleasing effect. Considerable improvement in 
appearance was accomplished in grading the grounds surrounding the High 
Tension Stations, and re-surfacing of the roads through the grounds from the 
highway. 

A concrete roadway approximately 300 feet long and 6 inches thick, was laid 
across the flats at Preston, from the fair grounds to the Hydro-Electric Power 
Commission's Property. It is expected that this roadway will be unaffected by the 
heavy spring floods in this vicinity, which previously rendered impassable the 
original gravel topped roadway. An increase was made in the supply of cooling 
water for this station by the sinking of a well just outside the station, and the 
installation of a deep well pump for pumping the water directly into the cooling 
system. The supply originally obtained from the small creek in the flats had 
latterly become inadequate. 

The tables given below show the load demands of the various municipalities 
as well as the increase during the year. 

The plotted curve on another page shows the monthly increase in the load; 
supplied from October, 1910, to October, 1916.

1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 7 

SEVERN SYSTEM 

The Commission's generating station at the Big Chute on the Severn River 
was overtaxed toward the middle of the fiscal year by the relatively large increase 
of the power demand of this district, as on the Niagara System, the increase in 
load resulting from the same cause. The steps taken to remedy this condition 
will be mentioned later. 

The operation of the generating station, sub-stations and transmission lines 
was very satisfactory and the increased load was taken care of in a very creditable 
manner. The Trent Valley Canal contractors completed certain work on the canal 
scheme in the vicinity of the generating station which greatly benefited the control 
of the head and tail water at this plant. Other special maintenance work was 
carried out by which the hydraulic? regulation was improved. 

A slight change was effected in the construction of the power and telephone 
lines of the Power House-Waubaushene Section where these lines cross Matcheash 
Bay, by the erection of an "A" frame structure with rock crib foundation to shorten 
this long span. This has eliminated trouble which was previously experienced at 
this point during very severe wind storms. 

The temporary 22,000-voIt pole type interswitching station at Waubaushene 
was moved to a new location on the Commission's property and altered slightly in 
design. The change was made to accommodate additional lines built from this 
point and for more efficient control of all lines from this operating centre. 

The work commenced in October, 1915, on the stringing of a second telephone 
circuit between Waubaushene and the power house was completed and placed in 
operation in the late fall. The additional rod of right-of-way acquired on each 
side of the line from Midland to Penetang was cleared of trees through the bush 
section of that line. 

Two new customers were connected to the Severn System lines during the 
year. Camp Borden, the new military training grounds prepared by the Depart- 
ment of Militia and Defence, was first supplied with power on June 29th, when the 
water pumps and the camp lighting was put in operation. The camp sub-station 
is fed over a single circuit of No. 6 copper tapped by means of airbreak switches on 
to the main transmission lines near the Barrie sub-station. 

The elevator of the Canadian Pacific Railway at Port McNicoll was first 
supplied with Hydro power on July 25th. The Company's station is fed from a 
double circuit of No. 1/0 aluminum from the Midland-Penetang main line, which 
was double circuited from Waubaushene to this point during the summer. This 
company is being supplied with approximately 1,000 h.p. of off peak power at 575 
volts during the season of navigation, in addition to approximately 250 h.p. for the 
operation of wharf machinery, lighting, etc., which will be utilized throughout the 
entire year. Below will be found a list of the demands of the various municipalities 
in October, 1915 and 1916, and the increase during the year.

HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 



EUGENIA SYSTEM 

The second generating station which the Commission has constructed was 
placed in official operation by Sir Adam Beck on November 18th when the muni- 
cipalities of the Eugenia System received Hydro power for the first time. The 
service supplied on this system has quite fulfilled the Commission's expectations 
in every way. 

The hydraulic and electrical features of the generating station have been 
given detailed description in previous reports. 

The transmission system now comprises 195 miles of 22,000-volt and 24 miles 
of 4,000-volt lines. The municipalities now served on this system are Owen 
Sound, Mount Forest, Durham, Dundalk, Flesherton, Chatsworth, Markdale, 
Holstein and Chesley. 

On June 13th a part of the Pine River System which was acquired by the 
Commission was connected to the Eugenia System by means of a thirty mile tie line 
built between Dundalk and Shelburne. The municipalities thus supplied were 
Orangeville, Shelburne and Homing's Mills. While satisfactory service was 
delivered since the acquisition of this system, the Commission is taking steps to 
place it on a par with the operating condition of the balance of the Eugenia 
System. This will consist of the erection of new sub-stations at Shelburne and 
Orangeville and complete renovation of the 22,000-volt lines between these points. 
The future outlook for this portion of the Eugenia System is very bright. 

The actual operation and maintenance of the Eugenia System is carried on 
jointly by co-operation with the municipalities supplied. The success of this 
scheme was no exception to that enjoyed on the other northern systems. 

Below will be found a tabulation showing the date of connection, initial load

WASDELLS SYSTEM 

While the power demand of the municipalities fed from the Wasdells System 
does not indicate the same growth which characterized the operation of some of 
the other systems, very satisfactory progress was maintained. A thoroughly 
reliable and continuous service was provided. The power house, transmission lines, 
and sub-stations required no extensive repairs and are in first-class operating 
condition. 

The excess capacity available at the power house over what was required for 
serving the Wasdells System was very conveniently and economically utilized to 
take care of the increased power demand of the municipalities of the Severn System. 

A tie line between the power house and the Orillia substation at Longford, 
constructed during the summer, made this arrangement possible, and after parallel 
operation was commenced on July 24th, the Wasdells power house supplied an 
average load of 750 h.p. continuously throughout the balance of the year without 
difficulty. Thus the Big Chute generating station was relieved of the greater 
part of the power demand of the municipality of Orillia, at Orillia and at Longford.

12 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

PARALLEL OPERATION OF THE SEVERN, EUGENIA 
AND WASDELLS SYSTEMS 

As mentioned above, some action became necessary to relieve the load conditions 
at the Big Chute generating station caused by the increase of the power demand 
of the municipalities fed from this plant. 

The first step in this direction was the erection of a 22,000-volt tie line of 
No. 1/0 aluminum, seven miles long, between the Wasdells power house and the 
sub-station belonging to the Municipality of Orillia at Longford. The balance of 
the circuit was completed by the existing Orillia 22,000-volt lines via the Orillia 
transforming and switching stations and the Big Chute plant. To complete tele- 
phone communication between the plant arrangements were made with Orillia to 
erect a telephone circuit on the power line poles between Orillia and Longford. 

The two plants were placed in normal parallel operation on July 24th, the 
Wasdells plant supplying practically all the load previously taken by Orillia from 
the Big Chute plant in addition to the load taken by the municipalities of the 
Wasdells System. Thus the primary object was gained of loading the Wasdells 
plant to a degree of economical operation and reducing the load on the Big Chute 
plant. 

The power supply for the Severn System was further augmented by the parallel- 
ing of the Eugenia plant with the Big Chute plant. This was accomplished by the 
erection of a 22,000-volt tie line of No. 1/0 copper and No. 9 iron telephone circuit, 
twenty-four miles long, between the Eugenia power house and the Collingwood dis- 
tribution station. The tie line was built in an incredibly short space of time and 
power from the Eugenia plant was first supplied to the Severn System on October 
6th. Temporary metering equipment was installed at both the Wasdells and the 
Eugenia plants to measure the interchange of power. 

The parallel operation of these systems has been entirely satisfactory, with 
added security of service to all customers supplied therefrom. 

On another page will be found curves showing typical fall operating con- 
ditions for twenty-four hours with the three systems in synchronism. 

CENTRAL ONTARIO SYSTEM 

The operation of the Central Ontario System has been entirely satisfactory 
since passing into the hands of the Commission. On account of the various points 
of supply total interruptions to service are almost impossible and have seldom, if 
ever, occurred. The operation of equipment has been most successful, no failures 
of any importance having taken place. 

The steadily growing load at various points has necessitated some readjust- 
ment of equipment. One 750 k.v.a. transformer was moved from Port Hope to 
Oshawa, bringing the capacity of that point up to 2,250 k.w., and on account of 
the construction of the Government arsenal at Lindsay it was necessary to inter- 
change two 300 k.w. units at Lindsay for two 750 k.w. units from Cobourg. At 
other points equipment of less importance has been replaced by apparatus more 
suitable to existing load conditions than that formerly used. 

Practically all equipment which had become obsolete or unfit for service was 
scrapped and advantage taken of the high prices for scrap metals at present in 
force. Careful studies of the lines were made and whenever it was profitable the 
amount of conductor material was reduced to the most economical point. The 
material recovered in this way enabled almost all extensions necessary to be taken 
care of without delay and without the purchase of additional conductor.

While the growing load will undoubtedly soon overtake the present capacity of 
generating plants it has been possible to carry ail load this year without taxing 
equipment and with a conservative amount of reserve apparatus available. 

Loads at the various towns are shown in the table below and the curve of the 
weekly peaks shows the growth of load since this property has been under the 
control of the Commission. Another table shows the total output of the system

14 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

MUSKOKA SYSTEM 

The power development on the south branch of the Muskoka River at Muskoka 
Village which had been taken over from the Municipality of Gravenhurst was 
formally under operation by the Commission on November 1st. The purchase 
comprised the power site which had been partially developed by the municipality 
and the existing generating station and hydraulic works on the property. On 
November 1st power was being supplied to Gravenhurst at 6,G00 volts and a small 
amount to Muskoka Village at 120 volts. 

The Commission immediately proceeded with the extension and remodelling 
of the generating station to place it in first-class operating condition and to 
deliver the power covered by contract with the Municipality of Huntsville. A 
detailed description of the new hydraulic and electrical equipment of the plant 
will be found in another section of the report. Every effort was exerted by the 
Commission to supply uninterrupted service during the alterations to the station. 

On August the 15th a 26 mile, 22,000-volt, No. 2 S.R. aluminum line to 
Huntsville distribution station was made alive for test. The sub-station was placed 
in operation permanently on August 25th. 

All construction details at the power house w r ere not completed at the end of 
October, which was due to the difficulty in obtaining reasonable delivery of 
materials. 

The peak load demands of the Municipalities of Gravenhurst and Huntsville 
for the month of October were 235 and 580 h.p. respectively. The Commission 
will be in a position to supply standard service and anticipates a very successful 
future for the Muskoka System.

PORT ARTHUR SYSTEM 

Steady progress was made in the operation of the Port Arthur System 
during the past year. The increase in load was taken care of by loading thb 
Current Eiver Hydraulic Plant of the City of Port Arthur to its full capacity 
Thus the Commission was not obliged to increase the present reserve demanc! 
of 2,600 h.p. from the Kaministquia Power Company. The Company's power 
supply to the Commission during the year was of the usual high standard. 

The total demand from both sources is approximately 5,100 horse-power at 
the present with indications of a; very material increase in the near future. 

The more uniform routine of operation established in 1915 whereby the 
load control of the Current Eiver station was placed in the hands of the Com- 
mission's operators has proved very economical in every respect. 

The Hydro transforming sub-station is in excellent condition, and no 
failures were reported during the year. 

Plans and specifications were prepared and material ordered for the erection 
of a wood pole line entrance and switching structure, at the transformer station 
to provide a means of sectionalizing the two 22,000 volt outgoing circuits to the 
grain elevators and to the waterworks station. This work will be carried out 
in conjunction with the Port Arthur Commission. Five air break switches will 
be installed on this structure. The Port Arthur Commission is proceeding with 
the erection of two air break switches on each of the lines built to the elevators 
and to the waterworks station. When these installations are completed it will 
be possible to feed any one of the four elevator stations from either of the two 
outgoing 22,000 volt lines from the sub-station and will greatly increase the 
flexibility and security of the service -on the high tension portion of the system.

16 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

THE ST. LAWRENCE SYSTEM 

The operation of the Commission's system on the St. Lawrence River for the 
past year proved very successful. The service received from the hydraulic plant 
at Iroquois was thoroughly reliable and practically no interruptions occurred. A 
recent inspection of the Commission's sub-stations and lines shows that so far the 
depreciation of this system is quite negligible. 

The total load demand of the municipalities during the year increased to 1,000 
h.p., an amount considerably above the capacity of the generating station at 
Iroquois. This difficulty was temporarily solved by paralleling the municipal 
auxiliary steam plant at Brockville with the Commission's power supply purchased 
at Iroquois. 

The transpositions in the transmission line between Morrisburg and Prescott 
are being rearranged to remove the inductive effect which has interfered with 
the proper operation of the Bell Telephone Company's line paralleling this line. 
A series of very interesting tests from an engineering standpoint are being made in 
connection with this work.

MUNICIPAL ACCOUNTS 

The results from municipal distribution of Hydro power are shown in the 
tables submitted in this section. In accordance with the requirements of the 
Ontario Government the municipal year ends on December 31st. The tables 
which follow under " Municipal Accounts " cover the calendar year ending De- 
cember 31st, while all other sections of the annual report deal with the fiscal year 
ending October 31st. 

The work of standardizing the electrical accounts of the Hydro-Electric muni- 
cipalities, commenced in 1912, has been continued. During the year accounting 
systems were established in Ailsa Craig, Blenheim, Brockville, Chesley, Chats- 
worth, Dundalk, Durham, Exeter, Flesherton, Grantham Township, Gravenhurst, 
Granton, Harriston, Holstein, Listowel, Markdale, Milverton, Mount Forest, 
Niagara Falls, Orangeville, Otterville, Owen Sound, Palmerston, Petrolia, Ridge- 
town, Stamford Township, Sarnia and Shelburne, and the local officers instructed 
in the proper handling of the books. 

A periodical inspection has been made of the electrical accounts of all Hydro- 
Electric municipalities, our accountants assisting the local officers by suggesting 
improved methods of office routine, and in the case of smaller towns and villages, 
where the utility is in charge of men of little bookkeeping experience, actually 
doing most of the accounting. 

The system of monthly balance sheets and operating reports enables the 
Provincial Commission to keep in close touch with local conditions, and from 
the reports and other data collected and worked up by the auditors, the capital 
expenditure and operating expenses are periodically divided into the principal 
revenue accounts, lighting, commercial power, municipal power and street light, 
these in turn being set against the respective revenues for the purpose of rate 
adjustment. 

This data enables this Commission to authorize and enforce a schedule of 
selling rates in each municipality which makes each of the above-named revenue 
departments self-supporting, so that an excessively high rate in one does not take 
care of a deficit in another. 

The seven statistical reports which follow show the result of operation and 
the present status of the electric utilities in the one hundred and twenty-eight 
municipalities in which the service has been installed long enough to justify a 
report. 

The municipalities have been listed in the order of their size according to 
Municipal Bulletin No. 10, Bureau of Industries of the Ontario Department of 
Agriculture; the populations are shown and the statistics permit an intelligent 
comparison of operating results in municipalities where conditions are similar. 
This is resulting in a friendly rivalry between the municipalities for an increased 
load, an efficient and economical administration, and an intelligent effort to im- 
prove the load factor, which is so essential to low selling rates. 

Statement " A " is a comparative condensed balance sheet of each munici- 
pality as at December 31st, 1915, and December 31st, 1916, showing the plant 
cost in logical subdivisions, and other items making up the total assets. The 
true or quick liabilities, such as debenture balance, bank overdraft and. accounts 
payable, are totalled separately before including such reserve accounts as deben- 
tures paid, sinking fund reserve, depreciation reserve and surplus. In this way 



22 NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 

the relative increase in plant value and net debt during the year in any municipality 
can be quickly determined. 

The percentage of net debt to plant cost at the end of each year has been 
worked out, and shows a marked decrease. Special attention is called to this 
very interesting and gratifying feature. 

All of the accounts appearing in the balance sheet under " Beserves," such 
as " Debentures Paid/' " Sinking Fund Beserve," " Depreciation Beserve," and 
" Surplus/' might properly be called surplus and represent the gross profit from 
operation. 

While a proper depreciation charge has been included in the operating ex- 
penses from the beginning, the plant extensions resulting from the growth of the 
service have in most cases absorbed most of the depreciation funds. A proper 
accounting has been kept of this, and interest credited the Depreciation Eeserve 
on the funds so used. A characteristic feature of the operation during the past two 
years has been a steady increase in the cash balances, which in some cases now 
amount to more than 25 per cent, of the total plant cost, notwithstanding the 
constant reductions in selling rates. Many commissions have loaned cash to the 
municipalities, and some have invested largely in Canadian War Loans, an innova- 
tion unique in the operation of civic utilities. 

Statement "B" is a condensed operating report for the year ending December 
31st, 1916, showing the result in each municipality. The population and the 
number of consumers in each class is also given to facilitate comparisons. In 
some cases where the power was turned on subsequent to January 1st, the propor- 
tion of the annual fixed charges corresponding to the period of operation has 
been used, and in other municipalities where the operation covers a very short 
period, and no actual payment has been made, the fixed charges have been omitted 
entirely to simplify the accounting in future years and avoid the necessity for 
annual adjustments. 

The cost of the service, which is the basis on which service is billed to the 
consumers includes every possible loading, i.e., cost of power, operation, main- 
tenance, administration, interest and sinking fund payments on debenture debt, 
and in addition the sinking fund equivalent of a 5 per cent, straight line deprecia- 
tion charge. No utility is considered to be on a satisfactory basis until the revenue 
is sufficient to meet this burden. The rate of depreciation, however, is subject 
to modification to meet unusual conditions such as large investments for land or 
perpetual water rights — concrete construction, unusual types of overhead or under- 
ground construction or short term debentures. 

A study of Statement " B " will show that of the 128 municipalities reported, 
the revenue in 111 was sufficient to take care of all operating and fixed charges 
and depreciation, in 11 others all charges except full depreciation were met, and 
in six only was there an actual loss, due to local conditions, which will 
correct themselves. The net credit balance of surplus from the year's operation 
in 128 municipalities, amounted to $357,393.72, and the systems are now serving 
148,732 customers, and a population of approximately 1,155,000. 

Statement "C" shows in detail the comparative revenue and expenses in 
each municipality for the past four years. This shows graphically the increase 
in business year by year and the gradual decrease in the proportion of revenue 
contributed by the municipal utilities. In comparing the cost of power purchased, 
the varying price paid per horse-power must be taken into consideration. This 
schedule will be found in Statement " F." 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 23 

Statement "D" shows for each municipality for each year of operation, the 
number of consumers served with light and power, the average monthly kw. hr. 
consumption, the average net cost per kw. hr., and the average net monthly bill. 
This is a tabulation of data never before attempted, so far as can be determined, 
and while built up on information not originally obtained for this purpose, and 
subject to errors, the averages are substantially correct and show the constantly 
increasing monthly consumption and decreasing net cost per kw. hr. and average 
monthly bill, and reflects the satisfactory nature of the service from the stand- 
point of the consumer. 

Statement " E " shows the approximate installation and annual cost per lamp 
of the street lighting service in cities, towns and villages where Hydro service 
has been installed. An interesting feature is the annual cost per capita based on 
the total populations. 

Statements "F" and "G" show comparatively the cost of power to the 
municipalities, the selling rates for power and light in 1912, 1913, 1914, 1915 
and 1916 and the recommended rates for 1917. 

In order that the effect of the Hydro co-operative scheme on the Hydro 
municipalities as a whole may be clearly shown, the operation for the past five 
years of all municipalities has been consolidated into one report, likewise the 
balance sheets for four years. These consolidated reports show the sound financial 
condition of the enterprise from the municipal standpoint and meet every criticism 
against municipal ownership and operation of electric utilities as carried on under 
the control of the Commission. Particular attention is called to the steady 
decrease in the percentage which the net debt balance bears to the total assets 
each year.

HYDRAULIC INVESTIGATIONS AND CONSTRUCTION 

MEASUREMENT OF STREAM FLOW 

The systematic measurement of stream flow was begun in 1912, and has been 
carried on continuously up to the present time 

This hydrometric study of the important rivers of the Province, though so far 
extending over a period of time too short to be really comprehensive, has neverthe- 
less resulted in the accumulation of an appreciable amount of valuable data, and 
has provided an absolutely necessary basis of computation for the proper study 
of hydraulic development, river improvement, and flood prevention. 

It is only by means of some governmental agency that information on stream 
flow can be adequately secured. The value of the data being directly proportional 
to the period of time over which it has been taken, the process is essentially con- 
tinuous. No individual or private enterprise, therefore, possibly can carry on a 
work the utility of which is dependent solely upon the consistent accumulation and 
compilation of data over a continuous and long period of years. 

The run-off from 47,000 square miles of watershed is now under continuous 
observation, but this is only about 12 per cent, of the total area of the basins 
within the boundaries of the Province, and the great number of enquiries received 
with reference to the flow of the rivers of Ontario, indicates not only that the 
Hydro-Electric Power Commission is becoming recognized as the source for de- 
pendable data of this kind, but also the necessity of increasing the scope of the work 
to cover a much greater territory within the Province than it does at present. In 
this connection it is especially necessary that the rivers flowing into James Bay and 
in the Lake Superior district be brought under observation, as the success of the 
large number of mining and pulp industries in this territory is absolutely 
dependent upon the power of the rivers, which cannot be gauged by any means 
other than the systematic study and recording of their flow. 

During the year 1916, conditions did not permit of the addition of new 
stations, or even of the desired amount of work on those already established, and 
the rivers covered are practically the same as those of the previous year. The 
discharge curves, however, are better defined as a result of measurements secured 
at river stages not reached during previous years, and the accuracy of the daily 
flow estimates has been increased to a corresponding extent. 

Many very valuable power sites are situated in uninhabited country often 
difficult of access, where river stages cannot be brought under continuous obser- 
vation. In such cases the only information secured has consisted of intermittent 
flow measurements taken by the metering parties on the occasion of such visits 
as they were able to make. 

As previously pointed out in the 1915 report, this report includes only the 
information that has been secured during the current water year, November 1st, 
1915, to October 31st, 1916. 



NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 



POWER AND STORAGE SURVEYS 

Niagara Power Development. 

During 1916 surveys were carried on continuously in connection with the 
gathering of the detailed information necessary for the design of the Chippawa- 
Queenston power plant. The initial surveys for this scheme are described in the 
report of the Commission for 1915. 

These surveys have necessitated the use of a comparatively large field force 
of engineers, and have included the securing of the necessary topographical in- 
formation, core drill explorations of the rock surface, and hydrometric data of the 
Welland and Niagara Rivers. The hydrometric information covered the con- 
tinuous reading of water levels along the Niagara Elver at essential locations, 
the measurements of flow in the Welland River, and at its mouth, and the study 
of velocities and surface filaments in the Niagara River at Chippawa, and at the 
power house location at Smeaton's curve. 

The office staff has been increased to transcribe the above information to the 
drawings, and to proceed with the design of the necessary structures. Good 
progress has been made on the studies of the best methods of construction for 
the work, and the preliminary designs are well advanced. 

Nipissing Power Company. 

The Nipissing Power Company, which was part of the assets of the Electric 
Power Company, taken over by the Provincial Government in May, 1916, is located 
on the South River near Powassan. 

The natural flow of the stream must be augmented in the near future, by 
storage on its head waters. Studies were made during 1916, by the Commission 
on the possibilities of securing this storage at Cox's Chute, and designs of the 
necessary dams have been prepared. 

The surge tank at present in use at, the power plant is of wood construction, 
and has outlived its period of usefulness. During the summer surveys were made 
at the power house, and information collected for the design of a new tank. 
The necessary drawings for a new steel structure have been prepared and the 
Commission are now calling for tenders for its construction and erection. 

Lac Seul Gauge 

Readings are taken twice daily on the gauge attached to the wharf at the 
main post of the Hudson's Bay Company, at Lac Seul. Considerable difficulty was 
experienced with this gauge during the high water of 1916, owing to movement 
taking place in the elevation of the wharf, and corrections have been applied for 
dates between which the gauge zero was checked. These water elevations are not 
used in connection with stream flow measurements, but only to obtain the stage of 
the lake. 

CROWN LEASES 

Under the terms of Water-Power Leases issued by the Department of Lands, 
Forests and Mines, the plans and specifications covering the development of any 
power site owned by the Province, must be approved by the Commission, as a 
condition governing the issue of the lease. Two important matters were dealt 
with under this head during the past year. 



1917 HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 



The first was the development of the Mattagami Pulp and Paper Company 
at Smooth Rock Falls on the Mattagami River. This scheme involved the build- 
ing of a large power plant and pulp mill at Smooth Rock Falls. This plant is 
under construction at the present time, in accordance with approved plans and 
specifications. Inspection of the works has been made from time to time. 

The Abitibi Pulp and Paper Company, who have already a development 
at Iroquois Falls, submitted plans in August for a further power installation at 
Twin Fails on the Abitibi River. The plans involve the elimination of the 
Company's dam at Couchiching Falls, which controls the storage of Lake Abitibi. 
These plans for this development have been submitted for approval, and pre- 
liminary construction, work is now in progress. 

POWER CONSTRUCTION 
SOUTH FALLS 

The South Falls plant is located on the south branch of the Muskoka river. 
A resume of the negotiations leading up to the acquisition of this plant from the 
Town of Gravenhurst was given in the report of the Commission for. 1915, and 
the contemplated changes and additions to the plant were noted therein. 

The work of extending the plant was commenced during September, 1915. 
A permanent road to the power house, and the subgrade for the wood-stave pipe 
were completed during the next six weeks. Cofferdams were put in for unwatering 
the head-works and tail race, the discharge water from old unit was diverted, and 
good progress made in the enlarging of tail race cut.. 

The excavation for the tail race and power house foundations was completed 
on January 10th, 1916. The first concrete in the power house was poured on 
January 11th, 1916, and the substructure was completed on March 27th, 1916. All 
of the above work was clone by clay labour, under the supervision of the Com- 
mission's engineers. 

The power house superstructure was built under contract by Witchall & Son, 
of Toronto. Work was started on March 13th, and completed on May 27th, 1916. 

The steel penstock, supplied by the Wm. Hamilton Company, of Peterboro, 
was delivered to the site in December, 1915, and the erection was completed on 
January 31st, 1916. The inaterial for the wood-stave pipe, with the exception of 
sills and chocks, was supplied by the Pacific Coast Pipe Company; the erection 
being done by the Commission's working staff. The work of erection was started 
on April 4th, 1916, but owing to delays in delivery of sills, etc., was not finally 
completed until the end of June. 

Some alterations had also to be made on the head works to accommodate the 
second pipe, this work being completed by April 4th, 1916. 

The turbine, flywheel, butterfly valve, etc., supplied by the Wm. Hamilton 
Company, were delivered at South Falls, on June 28th, and the governor and relief 
valve on July 15th. These were erected in place and grouted in by July 24th, and 
the new unit was put on commercial load on August 25th, 1916. 

The old unit was then shut down and the steel penstock emptied. Concrete 
saddles were built under it. earth and debris removed, and the pipe painted. 

The wood-stave pipe is 946 feet Jong and 60 inches inside diameter, and is 
connected to the head works by means of a steel thimble 5 feet in diameter. The 
penstock at the lower end of the pipe is 64 feet long and 5 feet in diameter. It is 



NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE No. 48 



provided with a 48-inch diameter Tee connection for a future surge tank, and a 
42-inch diameter cross-over connection to the old steel penstock in order that the 
capacity of the same may be increased when required. 

The turbine is a 23-inch single runner horizontal Samson wheel in a cone- 
cylinder case, and is provided with a 3-ton, 60-inch diameter flywheel. The rated 
capacity is 1,060 mechanical horse-power at the generator coupling when operating 
at 102-foot head and 720 r.p.m. The unit is controlled by a Ludlow oil-pressure 
governor, and a governor-operated relief valve. 

The turbine is direct connected to a 750 k.v.a., 60-cycle, three phase, 6,600- 
volt generator installed by the Canadian Westinghouse Company, of Hamilton, 
Ontario. 

The capacity now installed in this plant, including the old unit, is about 1,500 
electrical horse-power, and is now in continuous operation, supplying light and 
power to the municipalities of Gravenhurst and Hunts ville. 

COBDEN 

A hydro-electric power plant of about 135 electric horse-power, was completed 
for the village of Cobden during 1916. The preliminary report and estimate 
covering this development was published in the report of the Commission for 1915. 
This plant is designed to carry the lighting load of the village, and a small 10- 
hour industrial load. 

The designs for this plant were prepared, and the engineering work in general 
carried out by the Commission, on behalf of the municipality. The financing of the 
proposition was, however, a purely municipal undertaking, all costs being paid by 
the municipality. 

The development scheme involved the construction of a storage dam at the 
outlet of 01 instead lake, from whence water is drawn through about 7 miles of 
natural channel to the pond at the original mill site, which is controlled by an 
old, but still serviceable stone and earth-nil dam. This old dam has been made 
part of the new development, and water is drawn from the pond through 200 feet 
of new head-race. After passing through a new concrete head -block, the water is 
carried to the wheels through a 30-inch wood-stave pipe. 

The storage dam is a small earth-filled crib structure controlling about 
96,000,000 cubic feet of water, this volume of storage being considered sufficient 
to meet the anticipated load requirements. 

The power house is an entirely new structure throughout, and as the plant is 
situated about a mile from the village, it was provided with an upper residential 
storey, and a rear annex for the operator and his family, the whole being designed 
to combine practical utility with homelike architectural features. The foundations 
are of solid concrete, except for a portion where the stone foundations of the old 
mill were utilized. The lower storey of the main building is pressed brick, and 
the upper storey and annex is of wood with stained shingle trim and roof. The 
building contains eight residential rooms in addition to the machine room, which 
opens directly into the living-room. 

The machine installation consists of one Boving globe casing single runner 
turbine, of 160 H.P. capacity, running at 720 r.p.m., and provided with a fly- 
wheel coupling. Direct connected to the turbine is a Canadian General Electric 
Company generator, 3 phase, -60 cycle, 2,300 volts, and 100 k.v.a. capacity, with a 
belt driven exciter. The unit is controlled by a type "C" Woodward mechanical 
governor.

Cobden Development — Combined Residence and Power House 



1917 HYDRO-ELE CTRIC POWER COMMISSION 5 

This plant was tested out and put in commercial operation on November 24th, 
1916, and has been operating satisfactorily and continuously since that date. 

The plant as originally designed did not include the operator's residence, but 
apart from the increase in cost, which this change involved, the work was completed 
within the original estimates, in spite of the high cost of labour and materials, 
which could not be reasonably anticipated when the estimates were prepared. 

Almonte 

In the spring of 1916, the Town of Almonte asked the Commission to in- 
vestigate the possibilities of changing over their generating station and dis- 
tribution system from direct to alternating current. 

The station is located in the Town of" Almonte on the Mississippi Eiver, and 
operates under a 24-foot head. 

A report on the hydraulic features involved, together with an estimate of the 
cost of changing over to alternating current was made in July. Following the 
recommendations made in this report, the town proceeded with the work of 
remodelling the plant under the direction of the engineers of the Commission. 

The old equipment consisted of a pair of 42-inch diameter Barber turbines, 
horizontal setting, belt connected to a countershaft driving three-belted direct 
current generators of 130 k.w. total capacity. 

The two wheels were originally coupled together with a flange coupling, but 
this coupling broke due to vibration in the setting, so that at the time of inspection 
the wheels were working independently, though /belted to the same jack shaft. 

It was decided to extend the turbine shaft through the power house wall and 
place a single new A.C. generator in a new building to be erected against the 
wall of the existing power house. This arrangement ensured a solid foundation for 
the generator, and placed the drive belt well away from any leakage or dampness 
from the turbine casing. 

A pit for the drive pulley was excavated in rock and lined with concrete, 
and a concrete foundation constructed for the generator. A neat frame building 
15 feet x 19 feet was erected, to house the generator and exciter, and a frame 
housing was built over the pulley pit and belt. The centre line of the generator 
was set eighteen feet five inches above, and nineteen feet over, from the centre 
line of the turbine shaft. 

With this arrangement it was necessary to lengthen the turbine shaft six 
feet four inches, but as the drive was to be all from one end it was necessary to 
remove the old shaft from the near wheel, and replace it with a 5-inch shaft 
19 feet 6 inches long. This new shaft was procured, the necessary key seats cut, 
and collars turned for thrust bearings. New thrust bearings were purchased, 
being standard bearings 4 15-16 inches x 15 inches with adjustable base plates, 
and babbitted to fit the thrust collars on the shaft. 

When all was in readiness, the plant was shut down, the top of the wheel 
casing was dismantled and both shafts removed from the runners. One runner 
was taken to a local machine shop, where it was rebored to fit the new 5-inch 
shaft, and the end of the other shaft was turned and fitted to receive one-half 
of the jaw coupling. 

The runner was then replaced and pressed onto the new shaft, and when the 
jaw coupling, new stuffing box and dome bushings had been placed, the shafts 
were lined up and the thrust bearings grouted. 
2 h (iii) 



REPORT OF HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION No. 48 



New lignum vitae bearings were placed inside the casing, one on either side 
of the jaw coupling. These bearings were bolted to cast iron supports, resting on 
each side of the wooden wheel casing, and as the wet wood had proved to be far 
from rigid, new cast iron struts were placed so as to form knee braces from the 
bearings to the iron floor of the casing. 

Owing to the bearings not being rigid, during the period of previous 
operation, the perimeter of the runners had become badly worn, causing con- 
siderable leakage. To remedy this a %-inch x 1^-inch bar bent to the radius of 
the runner, was riveted to the inside of the cowl close up to the runner to ensure 
a more efficient water seal. 

The thrust bearings were located near the outer edge of the new shaft, one 
on either side of the 58-inch drive pulley. This pulley, as also the 46-inch 
pulley on the generator shaft, is an iron centre wood rim split pulley with a 
20 -inch face. 

The belt is 3-ply leather 20-inch x 69 feet 3 inches, and drives the new 250 
k.w. 60-cycle, 2,200-volt, three-phase Westinghouse generator. 

The plant has been operating quite satisfactorily since the change has been 
made.

HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER COMMISSION 



Bonnechere River near Eganville 

Location — 400 feet downstream from McCrae's Power Plant, and one mile from the 
Village of Eganville, near lot 16, concession 6, Township of Wilberforce, County 
of Renfrew. 

,Records Available — Discharge measurements from September, 1916. Gauge readings 
from September 24, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 670 square miles. 

Gauge — Points on the rock bottom of the river from which direct readings are made 
to the water surface. 

Channel and Control — The channel is slightly curved from the power house above 
and straight for % mile below the section. The bed of the river is shale, solid 
rock, and stones in some iplaces. The banks are high, rocky and wooded, and not 
liable to overflow. 

Discharge Measurements — Made by wading in section with the gauge at most stages, 
but frequently a few hundred yards further upstream at suitable low stages for 
better results. 

Winter Flow — The relation between gauge heights and discharge is seriously disturbed 
during winter months, and estimates for that period are not more than fair. 

Regulation — McCrae's plant and dam is a short distance above the section, and there 
is another dam at Eganville, and one between. The flow is further regulated by 
the operation of the Round Lake Dam and the lumber dams on tributary streams. 

Accuracy — Good for open channel measurements. 

Observer — H. Welk, Eganville.

Bonnechere River near Golden Lake 

Location— At the highway bridge between Golden Lake Station and Village, in the 
Township of South Algona, County of Renfrew. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from June, 1915. Daily gauge heights 
from June 26, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 575 square miles. 

Gauge — Elevations of water surface made by indirect readings from a point on the 
bridge, whose elevation is checked monthly. 

Channel and Control — Bays exist above and below the section, the current being very 
slow up to the bridge. The flow is confined between the abutments of the bridge 
at all stages. The bed of the river is well protected by large boulders, and is not 
subject to change. 

Winter Flow— Slightly affected by ice. 

Regulation — The flow is regulated to the capacity of the Round Lake Dam for storage 
purposes, and the lumber industry has flood dams on some of the tributary waters. 

Accuracy — Mean of daily readings give good results for stage readings. Calculations 
have been applied to compensate for dam effect in the spring and autumn of 1916. 

Observer — Mary Sunstrum, Golden Lake.

Bonnechere River at Renfrew 

Location — One^half mile below Raglan St., Town of Renfrew, Township of Horton, 
County of Renfrew, on the Barnett Estate. 



Records Available — Discharge measurements from September, 1916. 
readings from November 1, .1916. 



Daily gauge 



Drainage Area — 910 square miles. 

Gauge — On the right bank of the river at the section, a box chain gauge with nine 
of standard gauge plates. Distance from end of weight to marker is 12.43 feet. 



feet 



Channel and Control — The channel is straight for 100 feet above and 300 feet below the 
station, but both above and below the station long sharp curves occur. There is 
a high clay bank on the right, and a low clay bank on the left. At extreme high 
water there may be an escape from this channel of some water from higher above 
the section to points below the section. The bed of the stream is composed of clean 
small stones. 

Winter Flow — Little ice effect expected, though on occasions frazil ice from the rapids 
above may make meter measurements difficult. 

Regulation — The Round Lake Dam, the Golden Lake Dam for power purposes, and the 
dams on the upper river for lumbering purposes have large regulating effects on this 
river. The power plants in Renfrew, running twenty-four hours to their full 
capacity, and having little pondage, will not seriously affect the estimate of mean 
gauge heights. 

Observer — William Collie, 88 Bank St., Renfrew.

NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 48 



Madawaska River at Flat Rapids 

Location — Near lot 7, concession 9, Township of McNab, County of Renfrew, half mile 
below Flat Rapids. 

Records Available — High-water measurements during 1915 and 1916 to be used in con- 
junction with low-water measurements at this section for application to gauge 
readings taken at Claybank by the Ottawa River Storage Survey, from April 15, 
1909. Discharge measurements commenced in October, 1916, at this section, and 
September, 1915, at high-water section. 

Drainage Area — 3,210 square miles. 

Gauge — Nine feet of standard gauge plates on the boom crib 1,000 feet below the Clay- 
bank bridge, about 1,500 feet below the high water section, and 3 miles below the 
low water section. 

Channel and Control — Channel is straight for 3,000 feet above and 500 feet below the 
station and favorably fast current exists for metering purposes. Clay and gravel 
banks, high on the right bank, medium, to low on the left bank, but the river is not 
liable to overflow. The flow is through one channel at high and low stages and 
through two channels at medium stages. Possibly frazil ice may be expected on 
some days. 

Discharge Measurements — From boat and ice. 

Winter Flow — Gauge height discharge relation will be considerably affected by ice, but 
likely to be capable of close estimation from discharge measurements. 

Regulation — There are no powers developed on the river as yet, though construction 
has started on one at the foot of Calabogie Lake, which will have considerable 
regulating effect on the river below, but possibly not acting rapidly enough to 
disturb the gauge height discharge daily estimate. The storage works for lumbering 
purposes on the upper river and its tributaries are still in use. 

Observer — Narcisse Jandreau, R. R. Arnprior.

Madawaska River at Madawaska 

Location — 50 feet above the G.T. Ry. bridge, Canada Atlantic branch, 500 yards east 
of the Madawaska Station, Township of Murchison, District of Nipissing. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from September, 1915, and monthly 
thereafter, and gauge readings from September 27, 1915. 

Drainage Area— 800 square miles. 

Gauge — Three feet of standard gauge plates secured vertically to pile, three feet west 
of face of east abutment. 

Channel and Control — Channel is straight for about 400 feet above the section, curving 
slightly to the right under the bridge. The banks are sandy, and not liable to 
overflow. The bed of the river is soft, and there are some weeds above the section. 
The point of control is not clearly defined. 

Discharge Measurements — Made about fifty feet above gauge from a boat. 

Winter Flow — Affected by ice conditions. 

Regulation — Lumber interests on the river above the section operate dams for driving 

purposes. 

Accuracy— Open water rating, curve for ordinary stages likely to be very good. 
Observer — G. Wormke, Madawaska.

NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 48 



Mississippi River at Ferguson's Falls 

Location — At the highway on the road through the Village of Ferguson's Falls, 
near lots 16 and 17, concession 12, Township of Drummond, County of Lanark. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from July, 1915, and gauge readings from 
July 13, 1915. 

Drainage Area— 1.042 square miles. 

Gauge — to 6 feet of standard gauge plates secured to the inner face of the first pier 
from the south end of the bridge and near the downstream corner of the pier. 

Channel and Control — Channel is straight for 300 feet above and y 2 mile below the 
gauging station. The banks are not liable to overflow. There are 7 channels, 
formed by the piers of the bridge. The present control is a short distance below 
the section, and ice action there will affect the discharge relation at low winter 
stages, but this will not be the point of control for high-water stages. At certain 
stages measurements are made 1,500 feet below bridge. 

Winter Flow — Discharge relation will be affected by ice. 

Regulation — The river is regulated throughout its length by power and storage dams, 
as well as dams in connection with the timber industry. 

Accuracy — Open flow relation will be good. 

Observer — A. M. Sheppard, Ferguson's Falls.

Mississippi River at Galetta 

Location — In the Village of Galetta, Township of Fitzroy, County of Carleton, about 
one hundred feet above, and parallel to the highway bridge over the river. It is 
only a few hundred yards below the dam and power house of the Galetta Power & 
Milling Company. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from June, 1915, and gauge readings twice 
daily from June 24, 1915. 

Drainage Area— 1,456 square miles. 

Gauge to 9 feet of standard gauge plates secured to the left abutment of the high- 
way bridge. High stages measured by rule from gauge. 

Channel and Control — Channel is straight for 200 feet above and below the section to 
a little rapid. The river bed is composed of gravel and stones, with solid rock on 
the right bank and gravel on the left bank. The point of control is through a 
solid rock formation a hundred and fifty yards below the section. 

Discharge Measurements — Made by wading and from a boat held up to tag line by 
cable. Extreme high-water measurements have to be made from the highway 
bridge. 

Winter Flow — The winter conditions here will not seriously affect the gauge height 
and discharge relations. . 

Regulation — The river is subject to regulation throughout its entire length. In the 
headwaters are storage dams for power purposes, as well as timber dams for driving 
purposes. 

Accuracy — Owing to the wet season the wasted water has been considerably more than 
would usually be the case. This season's relations between gauge height and dis- 
charge are likely better than those of the ordinary year. 

Co-operation — Discharge measurements made at the bridge by the Department of Public 
Works of Canada. 

Observer— J. P. Coyne, Galetta.

NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 



No. 48 



Mississippi River near Snow Road 

Location — At the highway bridge about two miles below the Village of Snow Road, 
Township of Sherbrooke, County of Lanark. 

Records Available — Discharge measurements from July, 1915, and gauge readings on 
week days since July 30, 1915. 

Drainage Area — 496 square miles. 

Gauge — to 6 ft. of standard gauge plates secured vertically to the downstream side 
of the left abutment of the highway bridge. The elevation of the zero on gauge 
is assumed as 100.00. 

Channel and Control — The channel approaches and leaves the section at a slight angle. 
The banks are high, and are not liable to overflow. The bridge pier forms two 
channels at the gauging section. Earth, rocks and gravel in the river bed, not 
shifting. Control for ordinary stages not well defined. At very high water stages 
the point of control is probably the head of the rapids just above High Falls. 

Discharge Measurements — Measurements made from bridge at all stages. 

Winter Flow — Discharge relation affected by ice. 

Regulation — The power and lumber companies op
